Individual Races – Seniors
Road Races 2018
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 2018 are:
Sunday 10th June – St Alban’s Half Marathon
A race with a very good reputation. It hasn’t really been on our radar in the past but is less than 40 minutes away so why not give it a go.
Saturday 23rd June – Aylesbury parkrun 5K
We decided to stick with using parkruns for the 5K race, but have moved to Aylesbury for this year. It’s a very flat, fast course.
Friday 20th July – Beds AAA 10K
We thought it would be nice to support the Beds AAA event in Bedford. Having decided not to use Blisworth for the 5 mile, we also liked the idea of another Friday night race.
Sunday 7th October – Rugby 10
Ten mile races are in very short supply locally! Google maps reckons this is just under an hour from Leighton so please try to come and support it.
Sunday 25th November – Wolverton 5
This race has been going since 1965! It hasn’t actually been held in Wolverton for a long time, but is on a very flat fast course around Willen Lake.
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 and 2017 that we thought we’d keep them going.
Sunday 8th July – The third 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.
