Course Details

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.


Race Location: Victoria Park, London Road, Leicester LE2 1ND

Victoria Park is accessible by car, train and bus - and, of course, on foot and by bicycle. The race starts close to the Cenotaph with the Race HQ around 100 yards away towards the University of Leicester.

The park is easily accessible by foot. You can enter the park from London Road, Victoria Park Road or via the University. The park is located very close to Leicester Railway Station and it is only a 15 minute walk from there to the park via London Road.

For those who wish to drive to the event, there is very limited parking available on Victoria Park Road and London Road.
