Course information

Please arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

The Preston 5k course is a single lap route mostly on flat grass with the occasional slight incline. The route starts and finishes in the middle of the field. Due to the course being on grass, it may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

There are a mixture of obstacles along the way including inflatables, climbing, crawling and mud!

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

Remember to bring a towel and change of clothes for the way home!

Parking

Due to the nature of the obstacles this event is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchair users. However we do have standard 3K, 5K and 10K event available at the same venue which are suitable for wheelchair users. 

The event site and some parts of the course do involve going on grass and could be unsuitable for wheelchairs if the ground is wet, however short cuts are available. If spectating, the event site is mostly on grass, so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces

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
