This is a great new series of chip-timed 5km events which offer you the opportunity to
test your fitness and see your improvement across a 5 week period as we
launch 3 new races in June and July of 2020.
The Northwich 5km series is a flat and fast 5km held on a traffic free course with less than 10m of elevation gain across the entire course. The race is perfect for all runners whether you are chasing a PB or simply looking for a mid-week challenge and offers the perfect venue to bring friends and family to support you on this 2 lap course
The course is set in the stunning Neumann's Flashes which makes up part of the Northwich Woodlands in the heart of Cheshire.
In addition to our summer series you can put your end of year fitness to the test or blow away those festive cobwebs with our Boxing Day 5k race which will be the first staging of the race in December 2019.
Race HQ will be on Marbury Lane (CW9 5LN) next to the start and finish area
for the race. There is plenty of available parking in Northwich town centre
close by and race HQ will offer baggage drop for those choosing to travel
to the race on foot.
There are cash prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3 rd open male and female and prizes for the 1st place master athlete in all age categories.
All finishers will receive refreshments and water and a separate special edition medal for each race.
To ensure that the event is a safe and inclusive as possible we will have two separate races. The first at 7.00pm for runners who are capable of running under 20 minutes. The second race at 7.30pm is for runners of 20 minutes and over standard. You can pick your wave when entering the race.
You can transfer your place to another runner at no extra cost, however we do not offer refunds or deferrals. Transfers are available until midday on the day of the race.
