Organiser's Description

East London Runners, is pleased to host a great chip timed road race set in the scenic grounds of Valentines Park, Ilford.  UKA Road Licence Number 2021-42151

This is the seventh and final ELVIS race of the season.  Our race, in aid of a local charity, will start at 10.30am on Sunday 26th September 2021.  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.  East London Runners will donate the race surplus including the cake stall proceeds to ELHAP.

Race entry is open to all ELVIS Affiliated Clubs, other Clubs, and the general public aged 15 years and over.  Costs are £10.00 for affiliated athletes, and £12.00 for unaffiliated.  Confirmation of entry will be sent to you by email to the address provided within the entry details.  

Entries will close on the Friday 24th of September 2021. 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 registration so please arrive early to collect your number.  There may be few places available to purchase on the day for a fee.

Prizes will be awarded to 1st 3 men, 1st 3 women, 1st vet man and 1st woman aged 40, 50, 60 and 70 and male and female teams of 6. Prizes will be presented on the day as soon as possible after the race has finished and the results compiled.  One prize per person.

We are proudly inclusive of all members of the LGBT+ community and we welcome entrants as female, male and non-binary.  UKA rules dictate that only male and female runners qualify for ranking purposes. You can read more in UKA's Non-binary Guidance for Road Race Organisers.  Prizes will not be awarded to non-binary runners.  

The race will use chip timing to give all runners an accurate individual time.  Official results will be based on gun times unless the Covid situation requires a wave start, in which case official results will be based on chip times. Details of the exact Covid-19 mitigation measures in place for the race will be included in the pre-race briefing to entrants in advance of the race. 

Results will be posted on the ELR Club website, on the ELVIS Facebook page and on the ELVIS Clubs website

This year's race is sponsored by Leyton Sports Massage, who offer specialised sport & remedial massage treatments from its three locations in Leyton, Walthamstow and Angel, Islington.
