Summer 5k Series
Summer 5k Series
The 5k Series for 2018 have now been agreed as follows:
15 May – Wargrave
22 May – Cookham
29 May – Burnham
5 June –Marlow
19 June – Maidenhead
26 June – Handy Cross
10 July – Datchet
Each Club hosts a race. As you can see ours is on 29 May and is based at Caldicott School (where we start and finish our Half Marathon).
Each race is on a Tuesday evening with a race start time of 7.30pm. Club Members are only allowed to enter our race if we have sufficient marshals on the night. For other races you can run as many as you like. Each paid up Club Member will be allocated a race number to at the beginning of the series so you pick your number up on your first race and keep it for the whole series. It costs £1 per Club Member per race. You can bring guests but we charge them £3 per race. We would like Club Members to run in Club kit as the other Clubs do. There are no prizes for winners just enjoyment of the evening as the host Club puts on a spread after the race (ours is always the best!)
Each Club sends out instructions for their race 1-2 weeks prior to their event. These will then be emailed to the membership.
Two of the races, Wargrave and Marlow are part of our Club Championship.
Two new items agreed at the reps meeting this year. Firstly headphones are banned for safety reasons as most races are on public roads. Secondly to cut down on plastic you need to bring your own drinking vessel as no cups will be provided. The Club has some drinking cups (handed out to marshals at Beaconsfield) which are in Club colours and has the Club motif on it. The Club are selling them at a 50% discount so will only cost you £2.
