Individual Races – Seniors
Road Races 2017
The club road race championships work on the calendar year and we try to fit them in around all of the other club events, keep them local and spread them across the year. The races for 2017 are:
Friday 12th May – Blisworth 5
A long standing favourite that is part of the East Midlands Grand Prix Series. It’s a figure of 8 course with a very fast start and fast finish.
Saturday 24th June – MK parkrun 5K
With the popularity of parkrun ever increasing, it made sense to continue to use this one for the club champs after over 30 people have run it in the last two years. There is work in the park currently affecting the course. If this is not completed by June, we may relocate to Aylesbury.
Sunday 6th August – Bearbrook 10K
Just down the road in Aylesbury, run mostly on rural country roads and with a downhill second half.
Sunday 10th September – Swineshead 10
We used to use this race as club champs “back in the day”. It’s in north Bedfordshire and takes place on quiet country roads in a nice village location.
Sunday 10th December – MK Winter Half Marathon
We will use the ever popular Winter Half to round off the road running calendar. It’s a single loop around MK with just one hill worth talking of.
We take the attitude that we can’t expect everyone to do the same marathon so any time that you run 26.2 in a race (on an accurately measured course) will count, so take your pick!
The club’s new 1 mile track championships were such a great success in 2016 that we thought we’d do them again.
Saturday 8th July – The second running of 1 mile champs
All club members are encouraged to take part. There will be a series of races with runners allocated a race based on their estimated time so you will run with people of similar standard.
