Course information

The start and finish is in the Grand Ring near Farmers Fayre.

The course takes in the whole of Stoneleigh Park and is on a mixture of tarmac paths and grass. Due to the nature of the venue, the route does involve some hills, lumps, bumps, twists and turns and all adds to the challenge and fun. 

The 10K route is a double lap of the 5k route.

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. There will be a water refill station half way around the course and a ScottishPower water refill station will be available to use at the finish. 

Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time. 

Our courses have been measured with a measuring wheel.  This is the most accurate measurement method and may not always match up with fitbits, strava and Apple watches. 

Join forces or go solo

Event Site: The start and finish areas are both on the same grass field with sand paths surrounding it. Course: Our recomendation is that this event is accessible for wheelchair users with assistance. The majority of the course is on well maintained paths with a 1km section on grass.  If the weather is poor the grass section may become unsuitable. In this instance Course Marshals will advise of an alternative route, this will reduce the distance by approx. 1km.

Carers are welcome free of charge.

Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Race for Life. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.

Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.
Check out the latest range of Race for Life clothing and accessories in our online shop.

Be sun smart
Stay sun safe by finding shade when you’re not on the course and covering up with clothes, a hat and sunglasses. On parts you can’t cover, use sunscreen with at least SPF15 and a 4 or 5 star rating. Find out more about being sun smart.

Your back sign and race number
Remember to bring your back sign and Race number which will be sent to you in the post – don’t forget safety pins so you can attach them to you.
