Race for Life Carlisle 10k
Sun 30th July 2023
How to Get There
There is parking available at the Devonshire Walks Car park, just across the road from the start line in Bitts Park. Please note, this is a pay and display car park.
Please use the ‘Plan a Journey’ pages of cumbria.gov.uk to plan your journey.
The Carlisle 10k course is a double loop of the 5k course and is predominantly flat all the way round, mostly running on smooth paths and grass, with a short section of woodland trails. You will run around the newly renovated Sheepmount Stadium before heading back into woodlands and the gardens of Bitts Park.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
In dry weather this route is accessible to wheelchair users, but due to the large majority of the course being on grass, assistance is recommended.
In wet weather a large section of the course will be inaccessible to wheelchair users which will significantly reduce the distance. The grassy start/finish area will also be difficult to access.
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]
