Race for Life Gloucester 5k
Sun 4th June 2023
How to Get There
Please be aware there will be road closures in place from 8am so make sure you leave time to access the area.
The nearest train station is in the city centre and is a 10 minute walk from Gloucester Park.
The Gloucester 5K route starts in Gloucester Park before heading towards the docks along Spa Rd. Turning into the docks from Commercial Road, the route loops around the Historic Docks crossing Llanthony Bridge and Gloucester Lock. The route then heads to the Cathedral before returning to Gloucester Park through the city centre, re-entering the park via Spa Road.
The roads are closed for the route which is flat with a combination of grass, roads and pathways.
We kindly ask that you be respectful of other land users in areas such as the Docks and the bridges when passing through.
Please arrive 30 to 45mins before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
This event is suitable for wheelchair users but with assistance, due to the grass in the start/finish area.
It's worth noting that the grass may become boggy in poor weather conditions. If this were to be case, users would be able to miss the start and finish areas and still be able to access the rest of the course.
Please be aware that there is no blue badge parking at Gloucester Park. There are blue badge spaces in Gloucester Quays car park (Southgate Street) which is approximately 600m from the start/finish.
