Course information

This course is mainly on bumpy grass terain with some paved pathways too. It includes a couple of challening inclines that we advise are wheelchair accessible only with assistance. 

Meeting point

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 and when needed.

The start line is on the south side of the park, behind the boating lake reception.

Due to a road closure being implemented just before 10:30, you will not be able to access either of the Stanborough Park Car Parks after this time. Please park in the Gosling Sports Park (AL8 6XE) and walk down Stanborough Road (aprox 10 minute walk). Please note that you will need to access the leisure centre from the Parkway Roundabout side, as the closure will be implemented from the B653 Stanborough Road Roundabout. Alternatively, follow diversions on the day and leave plenty of time to travel. Local parking fees apply.

Parking

Due to the mixed terrain and a number of inclines this event is only suitable for wheelchair users if they have assistance.
