This course is a mixture of terrains.  The Event site is on grass so can become boggy and uneven in poor weather conditions. The main route is largely on tarmac, however there is a section of grass through Bolitho Gardens. The course is flat, but due to where the land varies this event is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.

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
