The event site and course are both accessible and suitable for wheelchair users. Our course goes down the Shambles which is a narrow cobbled street. Wheelchair users have been able to navigate this section in previous years, but if you think this isn't right for you an alternative route is available via Colliergate​ and our friendly course marshals will be happy to direct and assist you.

Please bring your own reusable water bottle filled. We have removed our single-use plastic bottles of water at the finish and pit stop stations and instead are providing water re-fill stations for you to top up and stay hydrated!
