Course information

The Cheltenham route goes around the perimeter of Cheltenham’s famous Racecourse and then extends into the nearby fields. The route goes along a combination of grass, woodchip and paths and has some gravel areas with short inclines in places. A picturesque venue in the heart of the Cotswolds and a perfect place to take part in Race for Life.

Parking

Due to the extremely uneven terrain of the helipad field, which is used for the 10k course, unfortunately this event is not suitable for wheelchair users. The event site is on hardstanding so is accessible for spectators using a wheelchair.

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 raceforlife@cancer.org.uk

Supporter / spectator access

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.
