24 Sep 17

East London Runners, with the help of Martin Clarke are pleased to host a great chip timed road race set in the scenic grounds of Valentines Park, Ilford.  UKA Road Licence Number 2017-27348.  

This is the seventh and final ELVIS race of the season.  Our race, in aid of local Charities, will start at 10.30am on Sunday 24th September 2017.  The course is flat and fast and will be run all on paths completely within the perimeter of the park and will be traffic free.  In 2016 East London Runners donated the race surplus including the cake stall proceeds of £1,250 to three local charities.

Race entry is open to all ELVIS Affiliated Clubs, other Clubs, and the general public aged 15 years and over.  Costs are £6.00 for affiliated athletes, and £8.00 for unaffiliated.  Confirmation of entry will be sent to you by email to the address provided within the entry details.  

Entries (up to race limit) will be accepted on the day until 10.15am, and will be subject to an additional fee. No transfers will be permitted, and unofficial transfers will be removed from the final results.  Race numbers are to be collected on the day from the race HQ so please arrive early to collect your number.  

Prizes will be awarded to 1st 3 men, 1st 3 women, 1st vet men aged 40, 50, 60 and 70 and 1st vet women aged 35, 45, 55, and 65.  Prizes will be presented on the day as soon as possible after the race has finished and the results compiled.  One prize per person.

Results will be posted on the ELR Club website www.eastlondonrunners.org.uk, on the ELVIS Facebook page and on the ELVIS Clubs website www.elvisraces.club
