Course information

The Huddersfield 5k course is a double lap 2.5K route mostly on path with the occasional slight incline. Some parts of the route involve going onto the grass, but these sections can be avoided if required. The route starts and finishes in the middle of the field and takes participants around various paths within Greenhead Park. Due to some of the course/start/finish being on grass, it may be slightly muddy underfoot depending on recent weather conditions.

Please bring a reusable water bottle with you if you require water during the event, as there will only be water available at the finish.

Meeting point

The meeting point and start line is within the main field at Greenhead Park behind the cafe. The finish line will also be within the similar vicinity.

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.

Greenhead Park covers a wide area, but the main postcode is HD1 4HS.

There is no event parking available at the venue, but there is limited roadside parking available on Park Drive. Please park responsibly and consider access for residents and emergency vehicles.

Limited disabled parking is available at the venue and there are a limited number of roadside disabled parking spaces on the roads surrounding Greenhead Park.

We would recommend that this event is wheelchair accessible with assistance. The event site is on grass, but wheelchair users can start the course when it goes onto hard standing path near the start if they prefer. The course is mostly flat with the occasional slight incline so those with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. There is a section of the course near the monument that is unsuitable for wheelchairs, but a short cut is available.

The venue is accessible by wheelchair from most entrances around Greenhead Park, the most suitable entrance for wheelchair users would be the main entrance on Gledholt Road as this is the entrance closest to the event site
