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 4 - Brixworth Country Park

Hi all and a very well done for yesterday evening. It was a tough course on a warm evening and you all did so well. We have received so many messages commenting what a wonderful, encouraging group of runners you all are :)

I have attached the 'Provisional' Results. As the race is timed manually we allow a few days for any issues to be highlighted, investigated and changed (if needed) before publishing the results as 'Final' and uploading them onto the Run Britain website. So, if you notice any issues, including;
1. Name spelt incorrectly or missing
2. Gender incorrect
3. Wrong or missing age category
4. Incorrect number with name
5. Timing way off what you would expect
6. Club name not present.

Please email me [email protected] by 5pm Monday 22nd July 2019. Photos will be uploaded onto our website early next week - https://www.northamptonshiresport.org/race-4---brixworth-country-park

Have a lovely summer and i look forward to see you at Irchester Country Park on the 8th September.

Hi all and a very well done for yesterday evening. We managed to stay dry and I didn’t see too many muddy trainers on the finish line!

1. Name spelt incorrectly or missing 
2. Gender incorrect

Race 3 - Delapre Abbey

sent by Northamptonshire Sport on 18/06/2019 at 20:40
Please note: After the rain we have had in the last few days (and likely to have overnight) the conditions on the course are quite muddy - especially around the lake. If you have trail trainers i would recommend you wear. If not, normal trainers will be fine - just prepare that they will get muddy - not the race for brand new white trainers that is for sure!

Race 3 - Delapre Abbey

sent by Northamptonshire Sport on 13/06/2019 at 18:01

Good Evening,

How are we onto the 3rd race of the series already - they are flying by! Hope you are ready for the next one? We are heading to Delapre Abbey in Northampton on the 19th June - probably the flattest of all the routes. 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.

Please head to the main car-park - parking is FREE but if you are able, please continue to car share so we can get everyone in and out in good time. Once the main car park is full, you will be directed to the overflow car park.Once parked, head towards the red NSport gazebo following the signs for 'Event Control' this is where you will register and pick up your race number. Event Control opens at 6.30pm. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] Looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday! Hope everyone is keeping everything crossed that this rain stops soon?

Jo

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
