The Bury St Edmunds route is around Nowton Park with its much loved central avenue, artistic sculptures and beautiful landscapes. Featuring a mix of terrain across the rich natural habitat, the route is described as cross country so we do ask participants to watch their step.

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

Parking

The route is entirely on grass.  It is not particularly hilly, but due to the nature of the venue the ground is uneven and can be soft and get rutted in damp weather.  Rabbit holes can appear overnight, although we endeavour to fill or route around every one that we find when setting up our course.  For these reasons we don’t feel that this course is wheelchair accessible.  Anyone wanting to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter is encouraged to undertake an assessment of the terrain before doing so.  On the day there will be accessible parking located in the main hardstanding car park.

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
