The Welwyn & Hatfield route is set within the boundaries of the beautiful Stanborough Park and will take you across grassland and onto pathways to enjoy views of the spectacular boating lakes. The park is rich in wildlife and the terrain and gradient of the course is mixed. There will be no water available on the 5k route, other than at the finish, so please bring your own bottle if you feel you will need it.
The start line is on the south side of the park, behind the boating lake reception. Please arrive an hour before the start time.
Parking is available at Stanborough Park but please be aware that parking fees apply and cameras are in operation. Follow the instructions on the payment machines as to how to activate your Race for Life discounted parking rate. Parking is limited so please car share and use public transport where possible. There will be no parking available at the Police HQ car park this year
Vehicles will be unable to leave the north car park from 11am until 12pm, due to the road closure which is in place for the event. If you will need to leave before 12pm, please let the stewards know so they can direct you to alternative parking.
Due to the mixed terrain and a number of inclines this event is only suitable for wheelchair users if they have assistance.
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you – there is a great atmosphere on the day! They can stroll around the stalls for face painting, refreshments and other family friendly activities.
