The Leicester course is in and around the grounds of Victoria Park on London Road. The route passes several landmarks including Leicester University and the Lutyens's Arch of Remembrance. With its picturesque setting, participants will enjoy the flat route with a mixture of terrains.
Both the start and finish lines are within the largest section of the park, opposite the sports courts, by London Road.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.
There is limited parking available at and around the venue. Please follow event signage. Disabled parking will be offered at Victoria Park Car Park.
Alternatively we have arranged for discounted parking at East Street and Welford Road NCP car parks. Please come to the Administration Tent and bring along your car park ticket for validation on the day.
The nearest station is Leicester and is a 10 minute walk away from Victoria Park.
There are also many bus routes passing Victoria Park.
This course is on alot of grass so is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.
Wet weather may impact the suitability of the course, in this instance a shorter course may be offered.
Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell. They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course!
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
