Stowmarket Friday 5

Friday, June 29, 2018 - 19:30

The Stowmarket Striders Friday 5 returns back to the beautiful Haughley Park this year but with a NEW road route.

Taking place on the evening of Friday 29th June, we start in the park and race for the first half mile down the main track before heading out onto lovely local roads to enjoy a bit of scenic countryside before looping back in the main entrance for a park finish. 

This route is part of our old Joe Cox Ten road race, is scenic, run on quiet country lanes, predominately flat with a couple of short inclines in the last mile.

Technically as the first half mile is off-road the road the race is classified is multi-terrain so will be accurately measured using GPS.  It's chip timed and is run under UKA rules.

Open to club and non-club runners, Prizes will be awarded to the 1st three male and female finishers.

Race numbers and chips can be collected from 5:30pm. Please complete the medical information required on the back of your race number. Do not fold, cut or mutilate you race number in any way.
