Northants 5K Race Series

The Series is now in its 6th year and has become embedded in the county's annual running calendar. With hundreds of runners taking part last year, including club runners, jogging groups and even those who are completely new to running, the 5k Race Series offers something for everyone.

The 2017 Series will include four trail run races across four venues, including two new trail venues at Delapre Abbey & Brixworth Country Park. All four venues are multi-terrain courses taking in some of Northamptonshire's beautiful parklands and woodlands.
