What to expect on the day

Starting in Everard Meadow, on the south bank of River Great Ouse, the short 2km takes you around the Longholme boating lake. This route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs (please note that the start area and main parking is on grass). The longer route goes around Priory Park’s lakes, fields and woodlands, before finishing with a walk around the Embankment area. This uses a mixture of paved footpaths, grass and woodland paths, so is not pushchair or wheelchair friendly.

Please note the routes are subject to change and the event site is on grass.

Don't forget your wellies and walking boots!

How to get there

There is strictly no event parking at Priory Park. Please use public transport and city parking where possible. There is limited parking in Everard Meadow, off Cardington Roundabout by Longholme Way, which can become congested on exiting the event.
