I’m not keen on doing laps so tend to stick to 10k. This was my second run at Victoria Park, and I beat my previous time and came 1st in my age category 😁. It’s a great park to run round plenty of marshals (who do a fantastic job by giving up their time to help). Whether your looking for a Pb or to try your 1st 5 or 10k this is for you. Want to see if you can do a half marathon then have a go… read more

Route description
Route description

We will have marshals all around the course as well as mile flags. The course is on the roads/paths in the park:

Half Marathon – 6.5 laps
10k – 3 laps
5k – 1.5 laps

Please be aware that we have a lead bike on the front of each race. In the event that the course is a multi lap course, be aware that the lead bike might catch up behind you, and will be communicating which side the bike will be passing. In the interest of safety to yourself, other runners, pedestrians and our marshals, it is very important that instructions are listened to, and that if you are wearing headphones, your music is at a level that will allow you to hear instructions clearly.

Also, please be aware that there will be spectators and members of the public using the park.

Well organised, no queue for getting bib. Great snacks afterwards. Finish could have been more exciting, felt a little bit of an anti-climax.
