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.

No event parking is available at this venue. Please use city centre car parks or public transport where possible. Limited roadside parking is available on Claremont Road.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
This event is recommended as suitable for wheelchair users with assistance due to terrain that can be very difficult to navigate. The majority of the course utilises the paths of the Town Moor which are surfaced with large stones, thus creating long sections of uneven terrain. The main event site and some small sections of course are on grass so may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions. The course can be adapted to avoid grass sections. Please speak to a member of staff on the day for alternative route options.
