The Annual Wednesday Night Running Club 11th Annual Handicap 5km Race Series will be held on:
- Wednesday 18th September - 6pm
- Wednesday 16th October - 6pm
- Wednesday 13th November - 6pm
These races are a fantastic opportunity for runners of ALL ABILITIES to improve their personal best 5km time. Due to handicapped start times, this race is a fast dash to the finish between runners of every ability. The past 9 winners have been runners of very varied pace and experience. This really is a competition for everyone!
All three races will begin and end on Safehaven Drive between West Bay Road and Esterley Tibbets Highway. The 5km route will have a staggered start based on runners pre-allocated start time. If you don't run with us on a Wednesday then get in touch and we can give you a handicap time.
There will be awards for the top 3 points scoring runners across the series, the overall winner also have their name engraved on the coveted Jim Kelly Trophy. There will also be trophies engraved with fastest male and female runners across the series. Awards will be presented at the WNRC Race Series dinner social (date TBC).
This event is open to all runners interested in participating. Runners not known to the club are asked to get in touch before the race to allocate handicaps. To be in contention for the overall series trophy, runners must have run with WNRC prior to the race series and make themselves known to a committee member. Runners who have not run with WNRC before are welcome to participate in the series but will only be able to win the fastest male and fastest female trophies awarded for the fastest time over the three races.
This year we are trying to go plastic free so please bring your own water for the end of the race. The planet will appreciate it.
Wednesday Night Running Club meets every Wednesday at 6pm outside World Gym (except for the 3 Wednesdays of the race series). The club is open to all levels of runners and is completely free. Come along any Wednesday and ask for Tony or Nicola. For more information on WNRC add us on Facebook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
