The Cheltenham route goes around the perimeter of Cheltenham’s famous Racecourse along a combination of grass, woodchip and paths. A picturesque venue in the heart of the Cotswolds and a perfect place to take part in Race for Life.
The start line is located next to the Grandstand buildings.
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.
Free of charge parking is available at the Racecourse.
The nearest train station is Cheltenham and is about an hour's walk away.
For local buses please refer to the Stagecoach website: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/timetables.
This course is mainly on the paths of the Cheltenham Racecourse track and is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance. However, the terrain may become boggy in poor weather conditions so shortcuts within the course may be taken that day if the grounds are unsuitable.
There are blue badge holder parking spaces close to Gate 21 (approx. 90 metres from the event site). The start and finish area is on hardstanding, as is the route from the blue badge parking area.
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
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.
