Northants 5K Race Series

With hundreds of runners taking part each year, including club runners, jogging groups and those who are completely new to running, the 5k Race Series offers something for everyone.

The Northants 5K Race Series started in 2011 and has become a regular fixture in the county's annual running calendar. With hundreds of runners taking part last year, including club runners, jogging groups and those who are completely new to running, the 5k Race Series offers something for everyone. Please note: As the Northants 5K Race Series is licensed by UK Athletics all entrants must be 11 years of age or older.

The Series includes 5 trail races. All 5 races are multi-terrain courses taking in some of Northamptonshire's beautiful parklands and woodlands. All finishers will receive one of our bespoke 5K Race medals – a different one to collect at each race.

  • Race 1 - Salcey Forest - Wednesday 19th May
  • Race 2 - Boughton House - Sunday 20th June
  • Race 3 - Brixworth Country Park - Wednesday 14th July
  • Race 4 - Sywell Country Park - Sunday 12th September
  • Race 5 - Delapre Abbey - Sunday 3rd October (TBC)

Book your place on the 2021 Northants 5K Race Series

We are unable to take any further bookings at this stage. We are hoping to open bookings after the first race at Salcey when we are certain we can get through the staggered starts efficiently and manage to keep socially distanced on site.

Booking information to be released soon!

Missed the Salcey Forest Race?

If you weren't able to book onto the Salcey Forest Race - why not take part virtually? Open for those who hadn't already booked and paid for the Salcey 5K due to Covid-19 and restrictions - why not enter this race virtually.

For a small cost, run the route in your own time, let us know when you have completed and we will pop the medal in the post for you.
