Barrow Runners 34th Boxing Day Handicap Road Race

26 Dec 16

Barrow Runners are proud to present the 34th Boxing Day Handicap Road Race.

For those of you who have not run this event before, it is the ultimate festive race of approximately 6 miles - perfect for burning-off the previous day's indulgences! Fancy Dress for this run is very much welcomed.


As a handicap race, runners start at staggered start-times (first runners setting-off at 10:50am) from Humphrey Perkins High School on Cotes Road, Barrow-upon-Soar. Runners should then arrive at the finish line at much the same time giving everybody the chance to share in a festive Mince Pie and a celebratory drink. Please give the best run time estimate you can so that you finish as close as possible to 12:00.


Unfortunately entries are limited to just 350 - as last years event sold out get your entry forms in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. 


Postal entries are also available and cost £8.60 for UKA affiliated runners, £10.60 for non-affiliated runners. There are no on the day entries. The closing date for pre-entries is Wednesday 21st December 2016. All race numbers and timing chips are to be collected on the day and must be collected by 10:30 – so please allow sufficient time for registration. Timing chips will be collected at the finish line. 


Please note there are limited toilet and changing facilities.  All runners must refrain from using MP3 players whilst running and running with dogs or buggy's/pushchairs isn't allowed.


For race details, your entry number and your handicap start time please check;


before race day. Good luck everybody and we look forward to seeing you on the day.
