The run is staged within the grounds of Colwick Country Park and incorporates a lap of the large lake and 2 laps around the smaller West Lake. The route starts and finishes on a small grass section and then takes advantage of the tarmac paths throughout the park. Participants will complete a beautifully scenic course before returning the the start / finish area.
Parking is available in and around Colwick Country Park. Runners are encouraged to consider public transport or car sharing. Please note that if you choose to bring your car to the park, a fee of £1.50 must be paid upon entering through an automatic barrier at the entrance. Correct change is required.

The course starts and finishes on an open flat area of grass and from then onwards, the route remains on path throughout, until reaching the finish area. Apart from approximately 100m of grass at the start / finish, the Big Fun Run Nottingham route is suitable for wheelchair users.
