This course is a mixture of Terrains.  The Event site is on grass so can become boggy and uneven in poor weather conditions. The main route is largely on tarmac, however there is a section of grass through Bolitho Gardens. The course is flat, but due to where the land varies this event is suitable for wheelchair users with assistance.

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

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.

Important Note: Please bring your own hydration liquid with you as there will be no bottled water at the finish due to the local council rules around plastics at events.
