Parking

Unfortunately this event is not deemed suitable for wheelchair users due to the cross-country terrain of Priory Country Park, particularly the 10k section alongside the River Great Ouse. The course is mostly on grass and this can become boggy when there is poor weather.

Should any spectators require blue badge parking, this will be in the overflow car park of Priory Country Park. Please be aware that the start/finish area is also on grass.

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
