Parking

The Eastbourne course is very flat and covers a wide variety of terrain. The majority of the route is on grass sports fields. There is a short section on tarmac and a kilometer on woodland paths which can be uneven with tree routes. With these factors in mind we suggest the Eastbourne course to be suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.

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
