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 Lloyd Park 3K route is a single lap which starts in the main playing fields and runs around the edge of the park, through the woods.  There are a couple of inclines and downhill stretches too. The majority of the route is on grass. 

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.

Please arrive 30 to 45 mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel. This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always correspond with digital tracking apps and watches.
