The race circuit is approximately 3km in length and is mostly on flattish parkland and grass with some short sections on woodland trails. Predominantly flat but with a couple of steep banks which are rideable in the dry (a bit trickier if wet!). There is usually a double plank obstacle in the circuit, otherwise the course tends to firm and rideable. A popular course and good for spectators as the start/finish/sign-on area is located in the centre of the park giving good views of the course.
Access is via Hook Street and vehicles can park on the grass events field, where the start/finish/sign-on is located. Follow directions and signs. Public car parking (pay meter) is also available at two locations in the park but race participants can park on the events field without charge.
Drinks, cakes and snacks will be on sale during the day on a donation basis.
Lydiard Park has toilets and changing facilities next to the Visitors Centre and childrens Play Areas.
Lydiard Park also has a large play area for children, a Jungle Parc Tree Climbing centre, and a Visitors centre selling snacks, drinks, sandwiches, ice-creams, etc.
