With the exception of race 1 which is 4 or 8 miles the remaining races in the series offer the choice of 5K and 10K, held each Wednesday at 18:45 and their motto ‘rock up and run’ means there’s no need for pre race entry as it’s entry on the night only, turn up pay your fee and you’re in! In addition, this year they are running a championship where each runner’s five fastest times of the series count, trophies are then awarded for first male and 1st female in each distance with overall winners being announced at the end of the series.
