About the 5k event
The original and most popular Race for Life event, the 5k is an entry-level distance and an achievable first challenge for most. At just over 3 miles it can take about an hour to complete on average, but there's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Walk, jog, run or make your way around the course however suits you to fund life-saving research.

Free car parking is available at the venue, but please note, this will be on grass. Accessible car parking is located in the main hardstanding car park.
The nearest train station is Bury St Edmunds however please note that the venue is a 45 minute walk away.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
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.
