Event Site: The start and finish areas are both on the same grass field in front of the bandstand. The field is flat and the ground is solid unless we have experienced substantial rainfall, in which case it could be boggy in places. There is a path around the perimeter of the event site. Wheelchair users can choose to join and finish the race where the grass meets the path (approx. 20m ). The event site is easily accessible from the Queens Park North and South car parks
