Race for Life Derby 5k
Sun 30th June 2024
How to Get There
Please note there is a short walk to the event site, depending on where you park so please allow time for this. Please see the Meeting point section for the exact event site location.
The nearest station is Derby Train Station. It is then a 25 minute walk to the event, so we recommend taxi sharing with friends from the station. There are also many bus routes passing Markeaton Park.
Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.
The course uses a mixture of grass field and main park paths. The grassed areas could be effected by poor weather and adjustments will be made where ever possible. There is a hill section for around 100m and a gravel path for around 80m in distance just after the 2K point that may require assistance.
We suggest this course is suitable to wheelchair users with assistance.
