The Swindon route starts and finishes in the field adjacent to the play area and meanders around Lydiard Park, taking in views of the house and lake. The route then heads out into the surroundings grounds looping around back to the finish area. The course is primarily on pathways with sections on mowed grass. The route has a section through the woods on the far side of the lake which includes a short incline.
The start is located in the field next to the play area.
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.
Please arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your start time.
Please note there will be no parking charges for participants and spectators parking on the official event car park throughout the event. Normal parking charges will apply to the rest of Lydiard Park, so please ensure you follow the temporary event signage to ensure you do not have to pay.
To access this event parking, please follow signs for Lydiard Park (via Hook Street), not signs for Lydiard House. Parking is not permitted on or via Hay Lane by Lydiard House.

This course is mainly on the paths within Lydiard Park apart from two sections on grass. These sections are in front of Lydiard House and in a field which is a shortcut for the course. There is a short incline into a wooded section near the lake.
With those considerations, the course is wheelchair accessible but with assistance, as these sections can be bumpy in places and can become boggy in poor weather conditions.
The start/finish area is also on grass and is approximately 75m from the main Lydiard Park car park, where there is blue badge parking and appropriate drop off points.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org&l
Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
We will be giving away bottled water at the finish line. But due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and our plans to reduce single use plastics at our events we encourage participants to bring their own water or hydration fluids on the day.
