The Welwyn and Hatfield route is set within the grounds of the beautiful Stanborough Park and is on a mixture of cross-country terrain and paved pathways. As well as some bumpy sections, it includes a couple of challenging uphill and downhill slopes.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
There will be a water refill station at the finish but no water stations along the course, so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up.
The start line is on the south side of the park, behind the boating lake reception.

Limited parking will be available in the south and north Stanborough Park car parks. Please be aware that parking fees apply here and cameras will be in operation. Follow the instructions on the payment machines as to how to activate the Race for Life discounted parking rate.
Please allow plenty of time to access the car parks as Stanborough Road will be closed from around 15 minutes prior to the start of the event and from this time, you will have to follow a long diversion to be able to access the car parks if approaching from the Gosling Sports Park end of the road.
Due to the mixed terrain and a number of inclines and declines, this event is deemed unsuitable for wheelchair users. For 2023, we have had to change the course to incorporate the field above the north car park and splash park, which is particularly steep.
For spectators, there will be blue badge parking available in the south car park. Please be aware that the event site is on grass.
The nearby Stevenage Race for Life is deemed suitable for wheelchair users.

We are delighted to welcome spectators to Race for Life so please do bring your family and friends along to cheer you on and support you on the day.
Please bring a filled water bottle with you to your event as we're proactively managing our impact on the environment. We will be removing single use plastic bottles.
