2018 5 & 10 Mile Races – Update for competitors

1. As mentioned elsewhere, we have purchased new automatic timing software for this year’s 5 & 10 mile races.

When you arrive to pick up your race number or enter you will be given your usual Number but on the back there will be a tag stuck on.

You will need to ensure that you are wearing this for the duration of the event to register your time when you cross the finish line.

If you lose this number/tag you will be disqualified.

Please note: Your race time will start when you cross the blue timing mat at the starting line and finish when you have crossed the mat at the finish. You must PASS OVER the mat at the finish in order for your time to be recorded.

2. We have extended the cut-off time for on-line entries. On-line entries for this year’s 5 & 10 Mile Races will now close at noon on Saturday 18th August.

5 and 10 Mile Running Race

This was attended by over 350 runners from all over the South and East of the Counties. The day was very hot which caused the runners a lot of difficulty this year. However they seemed to have enjoyed it. We the Lions would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took part and hope to see you again next year 26th August 2018. We would also wish to thank all the Marshal’s  and water station people , who did a wonderful job in directing and keeping the runners safe and watered. The money raised will be used to benifit charities and local causes. Thank You all once again.
