About the 5k event
The original and most popular Race for Life event, the 5k is an entry-level distance and an achievable first challenge for most. At just over 3 miles it can take about an hour to complete on average, but there's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Walk, jog, run or make your way around the course however suits you to fund life-saving research.

You fundraise, we discover
"Race for Life was an inspiring, uplifting, memorable day"
The start line is located on the grass between the Play park and Tilgate Lake.

Please use public transport where possible. There is limited parking available for this event in Gainsborough Field which is a short walk away from the main event site. Please note, you will be unable to drive through Tilgate park. For access to the parking please use Titmus Drive via Ashdown Drive where you will be directed by stewards.
We are no longer operating a park and ride service from the town centre, please see the metrobus website for local bus service options.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
Sections of the Crawley course that go through the woods are uneven, with lose gravel and some tree roots. We try to re-route as much as we can, but the weather can affect the terrain and the woodland areas can become a bit muddy in wet conditions. For this reason we deem this event as unsuitable for wheelchair users.
If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event or wish to bring a carer/assistant to accompany you or if you need to bring a guide runner, 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 email@example.com .
