Northants 5K Race Series
The Series is now in its 7th 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 2018 Series will include five trail runs including at a new venue at Deene Park near Corby. All 5 venues are multi-terrain courses taking in some of Northamptonshire's beautiful parklands and woodlands.
- Sunday 22nd April 2018 – Irchester Country Park, 11am
- Wednesday 16th May 2018 – Salcey Forest, 7.30pm
- Friday 29th June 2018- Brixworth Country Park, 7.30pm
- Wednesday 18th July 2018- Delapre Abbey, 7.30pm
- Friday 7th September 2018 - Deene Park, 7.30pm
The popular 5km race distance is suitable for people of all running abilities aged 11 years and over. On race day, 11 and 12 year olds must be accompanied by an adult entrant.
If you don't fancy running, then why not volunteer?
We are looking to recruit course marshals for all five races, who can direct and encourage the runners along the course, or give out the water or medals. This year we are offering each volunteer a free race entry for a friend/family member.
