Course information

The 5k route is a single lap that takes in the hugely famous Aintree Racecourse. The terrain is a mixture of soft sand, grass, gravelled and tarmacked pathways. It's a great venue, and a fantastic chance to see the Racecourse up close.

Please be aware, due to the time of year the ground conditions may deteriorate in bad weather.

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 located within the racecourse infront of the stands. The finish line is in a 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

Event day parking is available at Aintree Racecourse free of charge. Blue badge parking is available. Stewards will direct you on event day.

Parking

We would advise that our 5k course may be unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobilty aids, and pushchairs due to the soft sand, grass and uneven surfaces throughout the course. The event site is mainly on grass with a tarmac path surrounding it.

If spectating, the event site is mainly on grass so those with mobility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces. Please be aware the ground conditions may deteriorate quickly in bad weather.

Car Parking - The car park located at the venue has disabled parking available – please speak to a car park steward upon arrival who will assist you with this.
