Course information

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

The Doncaster 5k course is a single lap route mostly on flat grass with the occasional slight incline. The route starts and finishes in the middle of the playing fields and takes a full lap around the perimeter of Town Fields. Due to the course being on grass, it may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions. 

Please arrive 15 to 20minis before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time

We would recommend that this event is wheelchair accessible with assistance. The course and event site is all on grass, mostly flat with the occasional slight incline so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. However, the grass may become boggy in poor weather conditions, so an alternative shorter double lap route on the paths may be taken on the day if the grounds are unsuitable.

The venue is accessible from most entrances, however disabled parking would be recommended at the lay-by on Thorne Road or along Town Moor Avenue.

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.
