The Derby Summer 5K Series – Race 3 route

The course is a 2.5km loop around Darley Park, which runners will complete twice.

The course is largely flat although there is one short, sharp hill at the start of each lap. The route will be largely quiet but runners should be aware that there are no road closures in place and therefore be conscious of other park users.
