Avenue Run Jog Walk 5k & 1500mts
24 Oct 2021
Organised under ARC rules - Permit No. 21/220
For October we are holding the event one week earlier to avoid a clash with our Halloween Run therefore the date is Sunday 24 October.
This is a timed 5k and 1500mts that will normally take place on the last Sunday of the month taking place in what was once the most contaminated area in Europe. It is now a beautiful area to Run Jog Walk that is traffic free.
Entry fees are £4.00 for 16 years + and £3.00 for 1 -15 years. For the one entry fee you can run one or both events. Children from 7 years of age can run 5k with an adult.
Start times are 10.00am for the 1500mts and 10.15am for the 5k.
Following the Covid pandemic we have changed the Race HQ and parking to the Avenue Country Park, Hornbeam Drive, Wingerworth S42 6LZ. Please come ready to run, there are no toilets or changing facilities. Race numbers will be available to collect on race day from 9.30 at the Avenue car park.
The 5k course will be similar to the old one but with a new start/finish on the trail just down from the steps to the car park. Run/walk out along the trail to Mill Lane, then return to follow the trail around the football/cricket field down the slope turn left and go up to the marshalled turnround point just before the railway bridge. Return back along the trail to the slope for the short climb to the start/finish.
The 1500m course is now 3 laps of the football/cricket field so participants remain in full view at all times. A medal is awarded to all those who complete the 1500m.
Results will be available via Cannon Events FB page and also on the Race Website which contains all historical results CLICK HERE
After each 5k run the person with the most improved time, compared with recent Avenue 5k performance, will be presented with the Frazer Hipkiss Trophy which they will hold until the next race the following month. There will also be a presentation of trophies, to be held for one month, for the top 3 most improved male and female competitors for both the 5k and 1500m. To be eligible for a trophy you must have improved your time compared with recent performances.
