Nice Work is pleased to return to the Gravesend Cyclopark with the return of our popular Winter Series.

The series is a unique opportunity to sharpen up your speedwork on those dark winter nights. This tarmac course is floodlit and its undulating nature will offer just enough of a challenge, whilst still allowing for some fast times. Book your entry by the race, in blocks of three or buy a season ticket for all six races.

The races are great for spring marathon training and for a speedwork session, as part of a schedule to complete your first 5K and/or 10K, or for those just looking for a timed and measured run on a weekday winter's night.

The Gravesend Floodlit 10K and 5K Series – Race 1 routes

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. The route will be clearly marked using directional cones to guide you around the course and at the extremities of the course there will be extra lighting to guide you around the circuit.

The route is an undulating but fast course with a couple of inclines to contend with, along with a long downhill section and 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. We will be providing additional lighting in these areas; however, you may wish to run with a head torch if you struggle to see in low light.
