Course information

This 5k double lap route starts and finishes within the lovely grounds of Queen's Park and along Boythorpe Avenue. The course is flat and mostly on paths making it accessible to all.

Meeting point

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

The meeting point and start line is near the bandstand within Queen's Park.

There is no designated car park for this event as the park is accessible via a number of public transport routes and public car parks.

The nearest train station is Chesterfield, which is about a 15 minute walk to the start line. There are numerous bus services that run from the surrounding areas into the town centre and onto Park Road and Boythorpe Road that surround Queen's Park.

Car parking is available in a number of public pay and display car parks around the town centre which is just a short walk to Queen's Park. Please note the Queen's Park North Car Park will be closed for the duration of the event but the pay and display car parks on Queen's Park South and Boythorpe Avenue are both still operational as usual. There are a limited number of disabled car park spaces available for blue badge holders in Queen's Park North Car Park.

This 5k course is suitable for wheelchair users as it is mostly on flat paths and some grass areas.

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course! 

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
