Here's what races are available for The Gravesend Floodlit 10k and 5k Series – Race 1
The 10k and 5k courses use the fast tarmac cycle circuit. The 10k event will cover four laps and the 5k event will be two laps.
This fast and undulating course gives runners a few inclines to have a go at, as well as a long downhill section. The whole course covers the tarmac roads using the outer circuit of the Cyclopark.
Runners should be aware that although the majority of the Cyclopark is floodlit, the extremities of the circuit are not. There will be additional lighting in these areas; however, you may wish to run with a head torch if you struggle to see in low light.

Did the race in 2021
I had a fabulous run last night! Everything was run smoothly with covid protocols in place. Everyone was so friendly and supportive, I’ll definitely be back!
Did the race in 2021
It was well organised and I did enjoy it! The course was good for someone who hasn't done much running and good for training. The volunteers were great and always cheered you on.

Did the race in 2020
Tough four lap course and running in darkness takes getting used to at first. However, it's a great venue for a race in this time of COVID and as always, Nice Work's organisation was first class. Very quick at the front, but the course suits runners of all levels. Very accessible and easy parking. Looking forward to shaving off a few seconds in November ! Thanks to all at Nice Work for putting this series on.
