We have designed a lightning quick 5k in a fantastic location in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. This race is becoming a favourite for pb chasers across the region. The race has gained such a reputation that in spring 2017 we hosted the England Athletics 5k Road Running championships and we attract runners from across the country.
We will be hosting the 2018 England Athletics 5k Road Champs in this race. Elite men (sub 14.40 5k or 30.30 10k) and elite women (sub 16.40 5k or 34.30 10k) should contact us directly for an entry. The time needs to have been achieved within 12 months of the race.
On top of our standard prize money there is also a £500 cash prize for the winners of the England Athletics 5k Champs.
Race HQ is Kingsley Cricket Club Kingsley Cheshire WA6 8HY. There will be parking there as well as in the nearby fields. The race starts and finishes on Ball Lane where a full rolling road closure will allow you to concentrate on the race and not the oncoming traffic.
Entry is £11.00 and £9.00 for UKA members with an additional £2.00 for on the day entries with refreshments for all finishers. (UKA Licence pendng). Entrants must be 13 or over on race day.
We will again be posting race numbers out to those that enter early. There is plenty of free parking near the start and near to the finish.
Race instructions are usually emailed in the weeks building up to the race.
