The Colchester route is a single lap 5k which winds around historic Lower Castle Park and encompasses views of the river and, of course, the dramatic Roman Walls and Castle. Please take notice of signs on the course and to allow faster participants to pass safely by.
Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.
This route is mainly on grass and pathways with a few inclines. The ground can become soft and muddy near the river when there has been wet weather. For this reason we feel that wheelchair users would require 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 [email protected]
