How to Get There

Car parking is available at the venue. Please use the main drive into the park from Liebenrood Road to enter the event parking area on the right hand side of the drive. Stewards will guide you in out of the venue.



As a result of the higher volume of traffic we do expect some delays in accessing the park. Whist we endeavour to reduce this as much as possible we do ask that you plan to arrive prior to your event start time. We have lots to keep you entertained on the event site prior to your start time.



The nearest station is Reading West which is about a 15 minute walk to Prospect Park.



Please check back for details on electric charging points and bike racks.

Further Information

Unfortunately this event is not deemed suitable for wheelchair users due to the cross-country terrain of Prospect Park. The course is on grass and passes through thin woodland paths. It's also very steep in places. The start/finish area is also on grass but is flat and there will be spaces near to the event site that are reserved for blue badge holders, should any spectators require them.



If you require any further information on the accessibility of a Race for Life event or wish to bring a carer/assistant to accompany you or if you need to bring a guide runner, 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] .

Meeting Point Information

The start line can be found by following the pathway across the road from the car park.
