Brief

Heaton Park  is the setting for our 5km, 10km and 1 mile races. There will be multiple 5km and 10km races throughout the day . Each race will be split according to the estimated run time you enter at registration. There will be a fun 1-mile race for all the family to enjoy too. This will be a chip timed race.

The distances are officially measured and certificated with UK Athletics; therefore, the 5k run is multiple laps completing 1 lap of the oval circuit only, with the 10km being 2 laps. The course will be marked each 1km.

Please follow our signs and marshals on arrival. They will guide you to registration. There will be hot food and refreshments available within the event village.

To enter the race, you must be over 15 years old on the day of the race. Please enter the estimated finish time.

If you are entered into the 10k race you will proceed past the event village and complete a second lap. The course will be signposted every 1km.
