Virtual Avenue Run Jog Walk 5k & 1500mts

01 Sep 2020 - 30 Sep 2020

Organiser's Description


We have not been able to hold the monthly Avenue 5k since February and the expected continued restriction on holding road/trail races is likely to continue for some time. We therefore want to offer you the chance to run the Avenue 5K official course, either on your own or with a group from within your own household or social bubble.

Here is how it works: Sign up to the September edition of the Avenue 5k or 1500m. Anytime between 1st and 30th of the month then run/walk the official course at the Avenue Country Park. Having completed the course submit proof to john@cannonevents.co.uk  Proof is anything that shows the distance AND also the course you have run or walked e.g. Strava, Garmin.

You may run the course as many times as you like during the month for the one entry fee. So if you submit a time but think you can run quicker then make another attempt and if quicker submit your new time and evidence as above. Final Results will be published at the end of the month but provisional times of those submitted will be published weekly. 

Over the 5 months between August and December 2020, all entrants who complete a minimum of 3 x 5k or 3 x 1500m will receive a Commemorative Race T-shirt. Only your quickest time each month will count towards this so you must complete one 5k or 1500m in 3 separate months to qualify. 

We are also looking at making a monthly award for the most improved performance in various age categories. More details on this will be announced on FB when finalised.  

Entry fees are £4.00 for 16 years + and £3.00 for 1 -15 years. Under 16's may be accompanied on their run by an adult from within their household or social bubble.

Note: All runs/walks must abide by current restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 Coronavirus. Please do not exercise if you have Coronavirus symptoms - Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives.
