Upcoming races

Here is a selection of events over the following months that you may want to use when planning your races. Virtually all of the road races shown can be entered via the Runners World website. If anyone knows of local races that are not on the list then please e-mail andy_inchley@hotmail.com


Every Saturday morning at 9am all across the UK there are around 320 different 5K timed runs taking place (and another 230 around the world). They are all called parkrun and are free to take part in. You just have to register on the Parkrun website once and print out your personal barcode to take with you. At the end your barcode will be scanned and within a couple of hours your result will be e-mailed to you. In our neck of the woods there are a few different options, but pretty much the whole country is now covered;

  • Tring in Tring Park – 11 miles from Tiddenfoot (1 lap, off-road and hilly)
  • Aylesbury on Riverside Walk – 11 miles from Tiddenfoot (2 laps, flat)
  • Milton Keynes at Willen Lake – 12 miles from Tiddenfoot (1 lap, 1 hill and big field)
  • Luton in Wardown Park – 15 miles from Tiddenfoot (3 laps and fairly flat) – Starts 18th April
  • Gadebridge (Hemel) – 16 miles from Tiddenfoot (2 laps, multi-terrain and lumpy) – Starts 2nd May
  • Buckingham at Cornwalls Meadow – 18 miles from Tiddenfoot (2 laps and flat)
  • Bedford in Bedford Park – 22 miles from Tiddenfoot (2.5 laps and pretty flat)
