Due to the large volume of traffic accessing Newcastle Racecourse on the morning of the Children’s Cancer Run it is likely that it will take longer for you to get to the event than it would on a regular Sunday morning. Please allow plenty of time to arrive before your run start time.

Blue Badge Holders should contact the Children’s Cancer Run team for directions to park at the event on childrenscancerrun@neccr.org.uk

IMPORTANT TRAVEL INFORMATION

Due to several roadwork projects taking place within the Newcastle area over the date of the Children’s Cancer Run detailed routes have been designed in conjunction with the event traffic management team with the aim of minimising unnecessary traffic congestion for our runners on event day. Please note that they may not be the shortest distance or the route that your Sat Nav suggests you go.
