Race for Life London - Blackheath 5k
Sun 25th June 2023
How to Get There
The nearest station is Blackheath, which is a 10 minute walk away. This station is accessible.
The Blackheath 5k course is a single lap which is mainly on grass and winds up and down the heath. The course crosses some roads around the heath, but these roads have been closed for your safety. The Blackheath course is relatively flat throughout.
Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time.
There will not be any water refill stations along the course so if you require water during the event, please remember to bring your own reusable water bottle already filled up. You will be able to refill this at the refill station when you finish.
The majority of the course is on short cut grass on the common with a few road crossings, and is mainly flat. Whilst there are a lot of drop kerbs on the route, there may be one crossing without one. Please note that in the case of bad weather, the grass may become boggy. This course is wheelchair accessible with assistance. There will be an accessible toilet onsite.
