Course information

The 10km route is a double lap of the 5km route.

The Swindon route starts and finishes in the field adjacent to the play area and meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The route then heads out into the surroundings grounds looping around back to the finish area. The course is primarily on pathways with sections on mowed grass. The route has a section through the woods on the far side of the lake which includes a short incline.

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

Parking

This course is mainly on the paths within Lydiard Park apart from two sections on grass. These sections are in front of Lydiard House and in a field which is a shortcut for the course. There is a short incline into a wooded section near the lake.

With those considerations, the course is wheelchair accessible but with assistance, as these sections can be bumpy in places and can become boggy in poor weather conditions.

The start/finish area is also on grass and is approximately 75m from the main Lydiard Park car park, where there is blue badge parking and appropriate drop off points.

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
