Course information

The Maidstone route runs around the lake, through some cross country areas, and along the paths of this beautiful park. The course has a few steep inclines to challenge you and you will feel a sense of achievement once you have finished.

Please arrive 15 to 20 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.


Meeting point

The start and finish area will be located between Mote Park Pavilion cafe, Maidstone Leisure Centre and 'Mote Park Main Children's Playground' (as labelled on Google Maps).

There will be free of charge parking at the event from 09:00, but we encourage you to consider public transport and car sharing. Please note that there are paid car parks on site accessible from 08:00 which you may also choose to use.

For anyone intending on parking at Mote Park, the designated Race for Life car park opens at 09:00 and will close at 16:00, so please ensure that your vehicle is moved by this time. Any cars left in this car park after this time will be locked in until the following day.

When leaving by car, please exit by turning left onto Willow Way (right turns will cause congestion) then take a right onto Park Way which will take you on to the A229. This will really help car congestion on the day of the event and get you home quickly.
