This course is mainly on tarmac pathways through the park with a small amount on grass. It starts on the Showground, makes the most of some of the lovely wide walk ways surrounding the park and takes in many of the beautiful tree-lined paths within the park - these trees are usually in blossom when Race for Life takes place and it is stunning. It finishes back in the Showground.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the refill station when you finish.
The start line is on the main showground area in Harlow Town Park.
