Accessibility of this course changes depending on recent weather conditions due to a large section of the course being on grass. 

In dry weather this route is accessible to wheelchair users but assistance is recommended. In wet conditions a large section of the course will be inaccessible to wheelchair users however the course can be adapted (although this will significantly reduce the distance). The main event site is on grass so may be muddy underfoot.

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
