Course Details

The Caernarfon 5k course heads out and back along the scenic Menai Straight, featuring the Anglesey shore as a background. The course is mainly on a flat tarmac road with incredible views of the Snowdonia Mountains and Caernarfon Castle.

Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.

Further Information

The Caernarfon 5k route is a predominately flat course, therefore we would recommend that this event is suitable for wheelchair users as the course is mainly on tarmac and remains flat throughout. A small section of the course is gravelled, but this area can be avoided if required. If spectating the event site, the start and finish line are all located on a grass field, but there is an area of hardstanding in close proximity. Please be aware that in wet weather ground conditions on the grassed areas can deteriorate quickly.

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 [email protected]
