Summer 5k Series
Summer 5k Series
The 5k Series for 2020 have now been agreed as follows:
5 May – Wargrave (Reserve date 12 May)
19 May – Cookham (Reserve date 2 June)
26 May – Burnham
9 June – Handy Cross
16 June – Maidenhead
7 July – Marlow*
14 July – Datchet*
* These dates have been arranged considering eventualities based on the success (or otherwise!) of the England Football Team at Euro 2020. If England don’t play on 30th June, Datchet will be moved to this date (if 7th July is also ruled out for England). Marlow will be moved to 30th June if 7th July is a probable England Match.
Each Club hosts a race. As you can see ours is on 26 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.
Wargrave is part of our Club Championship.
Please Note: Headphones are banned for safety reasons as most races are on public roads. To cut down on plastic you need to bring your own drinking vessel as no cups will be provided.
