Northants 5K Whole Race Series

Northants 5K Race Series

The Northants 5K Race Series is now in its 8th year and has become a regular fixture in the county's annual running calendar. With hundreds of runners taking part last year, including club runners, jogging groups and those who are completely new to running, the 5k Race Series offers something for everyone.

The 2019 Series will include 5 trail races. All 5 races are multi-terrain courses taking in some of Northamptonshire's beautiful parklands and woodlands. All finishers will receive one of our bespoke 5K Race medals – a different one to collect at each race.

Race 1 - 24th April 2019 - Deene Park - 19:15 start

Race 2 - 15th May 2019 - Salcey Forest - 19:30 start

Race 3 - 19th June 2019 - Delapre - 19:30 start

Race 4 - 17th July 2019 - Brixworth Country Park - 19:30 start

Northants 5K Race Series - Race#1 Deene Park

sent by Northamptonshire Sport on 16/04/2019 at 16:42
Good Afternoon,

We hope you are looking forward to the first race of the 2019 Northants 5K Race Series as much as we are? I have attached a couple of documents for you to have a read through before Race Day. There will also be a Race Briefing before the start of each race. I have included the map of the route.

Deene Park can be accessed from the Kirby Lane entrance. There will be signage and staff to get you on site and parked efficiently. There is a parking fee of £2. Please make sure you bring cash (ideally the correct amount, to keep traffic moving) 

Once parked, head towards the red NSport gazebo through the gardens where you will register. Race Numbers and T shirts will be collected from here also. If you can't make this first race, you can pick up your number and t shirt at the first race you attend. Race 1 will start promptly at 7.15pm - as light may not be on our side later on.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] 

Looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday! Race

Hi Chris, yes you can still enter the races individually. Go to Browse Events and search northamptonshire sport and all 5 races will come up.

I see that whole series is sold out. Can I still run at each event or is there another way to join the whole series..? I managed to run 2 races last year.

I had a note in my diary to enter before 23rd April but it seems I am too late! The 5k series is sold out. I am gutted. Is there any chance of getting a place?

Hi Louise, we will be doing the Virtual 5K again this year. To take part you need to be booked onto all races. If there is a race you can not attend. Just either send us a photo of you doing a 5K where you are or go to the venue at any time before the end of October 2019, run the route, tag us in a photo and we will send out your medal to you. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates - Twitter @Nsport and search Northamptonshire Sport on Facebook. Jo
