Encouraging road/cross country runners onto the track:

Bristol and West are passionate about providing opportunities for athletes to compete across the whole range of running disciplines. The Fast 5000s event is a perfect opportunity for those who have previously competed on the road/over the country to make a transition into track running, as well as providing elite competition for experienced track athletes.

This event will be held under UKA Rules for competition.

The event will be live streamed on the club Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BristolandWestAC/
