The Leicester City 5k course is a two lap route covering the tarmac paths within the boundaries of Victoria Park. The course has been officially measured and carries a certificate of course accuracy (certificate number: 12/186). The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows and directional cones, as well as being marshalled throughout. The route is a flat course with only one gentle incline to contend with. We would ask you to remember that we do not have exclusive use of the park and you should be aware that other park users will be on the course.
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
