This course is suitable for wheelchair users but assistance may be required in some areas. With a change to the route for this year, the majority of the course is on tarmac paths.

For any spectators with wheelchairs who wish to access the start and finish area, there is blue badge parking about 150m from the event site. This area is on grass, so may get boggy in poor weather conditions.
