Course information

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

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 route starts and finishes in the very centre of Victoria Park. The 5k course is a single lap route that is almost completely flat. The route takes participants around the football and rugby pitches within the park and then on to the national towpath that surrounds the park. Upon returning along the towpath, the course turns left on to the paths within the park. The route cuts back onto the main field with about 1km to go before looping back around to the finish line.

Parking

Although the course is flat and smooth, more than half of the route is on grass and wet weather would make the use of a wheelchair or pushchair difficult. We would recommed that you make a decison based on your own ability if the course is suitable for you. Our official recommendation is that the event is not suitable for wheelchair users. 

The event site is in the middle of grass playing fields, and in wet weather it could be difficult for spectators to access the start / finish lines. Blue badge parking and disabled portaloos are provided at this venue.

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
