Event summary
Here are the distances available for Drayton Rollercoaster 5K & 10K - June
Route information
RunThrough's fast and flat 5K or 10K through Drayton Manor theme park is the perfect way to spend a Wednesday evening this summer. Race the setting sun through the grounds of the park, and enjoy the imposing rollercoasters as they zoom above you.
The course is a perfect opportunity to decompress after work, or challenge yourself to set a new PB on the super flat course. It will be a lapped course, starting and finishing just outside the theme park, with 5K runners doing 2 laps, and 10K runners doing 4.
There will be course marshals throughout and distances will be clearly marked.
