How to Get There

There is limited car parking at Garon Park so we ask that participants utilise local transport links where possible.

You can find information on a bus service that runs to the Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre from Southend Town Centre, which is a short walk from Garon Park Showground here: https://www.arrivabus.co.uk/herts-and-essex/services/6---garon-park---southend-town-centre/

First Bus also operate a service to Garon Park – see timetables at www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/

Designated Cycle Parking - There is bike parking available with 8 metal “U” bars which can accommodate 16 cycles located near the main entrance. There will soon be a further 2 units the same size as the venue progress with site developments at other entrances. The venue also have a limited number bike locks for hire within the Pitchside Café.

Course Details

The Southend-on-Sea route starts and finishes in the Garon Park showground area with a two lap route taking in the Cricket ground as well. The route is relatively flat but is on grass which can be uneven and soft when the weather is poor.

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.

Further Information

The event site and the majority of this two lap couse is entirely on grass which can get soft underfoot in the event of poor weather. Some wheelchair users who have assistance may want to take part, but it is a challenging surface and we'd like to make participants aware that the ground is uneven and can be very hard going, especially if the ground is wet.

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]

Meeting Point Information

The start line is within Beveridge Park, on the field adjacent to Kirkcaldy Rugby Club. The nearest entrance of the park to the start line is on Abbotshall Road.
