PARKRUN’S COMING HOME
WALLETS OUT FOR A SWIFT HALF
If you have been sent out a registration email, please sign up and pay the £10 registration fee to the Big Half directly & immediately to secure your place.
There are many Kent AC runners fully signed up, but a few still need to pay. Bear in mind that those who don’t register and pay will have their names removed and places reallocated, so please pay ASAP if you haven’t already.
DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
Date: Thursday 5th August
Time: Juniors 6:45pm, Seniors from 7:15pm
Venue: Trevor Bailey Sports Ground, Dulwich Common, SE21 7HA
Course: Juniors TBC, Seniors approx. 4miles (please note the course is all on grass and we will be running whatever the weather!)
To enter please complete this google form with your 5k road PB and current predicted 5k race time. Entry is FREE for all fully up-to date paid members of Kent AC. You must be a member to enter.
How does it work?
You’ll be given an exact start time based on your current predicted 5k time. Faster runners will start last, meaning it’s a race to the finish for all competitors, with first one to cross the line the winner.
There will also be a junior race starting at 6:45pm. More details to follow in next week’s newsletter.
After the race (from 8pm) we will meet at The Signal Pub in Forest Hill for food and drinks and to say farewell to Ben Cook who we will be sad to see leave London in mid-August. We are still finalising the details, but please let us know if you intend to join us on the google form. Details on how to buy a ticket will follow in next week’s newsletter. We hope to see you there!
Any questions please contact Amelia ().
