Race For Life 5K – Buxton route


The Buxton 5k course is a double lap route within the lovely Pavilion Gardens. The route is flat and mostly on paths making it accessible for all.

This course is wheelchair accessible with some assistance in places. It is largely flat and mostly following tarmac paths. The are some small sections on the grass where asisstance may be required. The course does cross over the miniature railway track twice, and we will have ramps and marshals in attendance to aid any wheelchair users across this section.
