About the 3k event

3k in a pink circle icon
The 3k is the perfect distance (just over 2 miles) to take on as your first Race for Life challenge! It's ideal to take part in solo, as a family or group and is a fun, achievable event for everyone. There's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Run, jog or walk at your own pace, or make your way around the course however suits you to fund our life-saving cancer research.

Course information

The Kingston and Kempton Park 3K course is a single lap on tarmac and is flat throughout, beginning inside the racetrack and following the inner path of the racecourse grounds. Small sections of the course travel over the racetrack itself resulting in slightly uneven ground around this area. 

Please arrive 30 to 45mins 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.

Parking

This event is wheelchair accessible with assistance. The majority of the course is on hardstanding ground, but there are sections of the course that cross over the racetrack, making the ground slightly uneven at this point and small sections near the start/finish that travel on grass. People with visual impairments are welcome to take part with a guide. There will be an accessible toilet onsite. 

If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event, or wish to bring a carer/helper to accompany you, please contact our Supporter Hotline on 0300 123 0770 and press 1 when prompted (Opening hours are 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday) or email us at raceforlife@cancer.org.uk

Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Race for Life. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.

Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.
Check out the latest range of Race for Life clothing and accessories in our online shop.

Be sun smart
Stay sun safe by finding shade when you’re not on the course and covering up with clothes, a hat and sunglasses. On parts you can’t cover, use sunscreen with at least SPF15 and a 4 or 5 star rating. Find out more about being sun smart.

Your back sign and race number
Remember to bring your back sign and Race number which will be sent to you in the post – don’t forget safety pins so you can attach them to you.

We're with you every step of the way
