5K Frequently Asked Questions

What time should I arrive on race day?

We recommend allowing an hour to 90mins prior to the start of the race, to park, to collect your number and T-shirt if you are eligible for one and get prepared in good time.

The series is multi terrain, will I need spare trainers?

The Irchester race in particular, has a muddy section, so you may want to bring spare footwear, especially if we suffer adverse weather conditions before the race day

I've entered all 4 races, where do I collect my T-shirt?

You can collect your T-shirt at Irchester on the first race.

If I have entered more than one race, do I need to keep my race number?

Yes, you will receive your race number at your first race with pins to attach it to your shirt. Please keep hold of these after the race and bring them with you to any further races you do on the 5K Race Series.

I would like to buy a T-shirt, are they available to purchase?

Yes, while stocks last, T-shirts can be purchased for £7.50.

Is there a car parking charge at each venue?

Irchester, Salcey and Brixworth all charge for car parking. Prices may change but this is usually around £3 - £4.

Are there medals?

Yes, each race will have a different medal available, and the full set fits together.

Can I run with my dog?

Sadly, our insurance does not cover us for dogs. Spectators with dogs under control are more than welcome.

Can I turn up and enter on the day?

Yes, it will cost you a bit more than booking online. If we exceed our entry levels, we will have to turn people away on race day so please keep checking www.northamptonshiresport.org/5k

I can't make it on the day, can I get a refund?

Sorry, we are unable to refund entry fees.
