This year your own hea torches can be used but they must be below 50 lumens in brightness, this is to prevent people being startled by extremely bright head torches.  If you do not own one i can sell you one for £3 including batteries that will do the job equally well.

Tod Park 5k Winter Series Flyer

Why stop racing just because the clocks have gone back? Using head torches and a well lit park we can have the same fun we had in the summer series! A festive theme to the last race will set you up for Christmas – details will follow.

*Fast 5 1k-lap course around a flat picturesque park.
*Great course for training, breaking a PB or just enjoying an organised run.
*Races are Athlete bar code timed so results are highly accurate and available quickly.
*The course is certified by Course measurement and insured under UKA.
*All Results will appear on Run Britain and Power of 10 rankings.

Route Description The Route starts and ends in the same position at the statue in the middle path of the park. This will allow runners to finish off the main route and not disrupt other runners still running. Starting from the middle path it goes past the lucky dog, down the small hill and heads along the straight path to the bowling green entrance. Turning right through the bollards onto the straight and keeping on the path passing the bandstand to the bottom of the path. It then goes round the cones to the long straight back to the beginning of the race route. Repeat this route another 4 times till you get to the finish. The clock will be at the start so those interested in pacing simply need to divide your target time by 5 to get your 1k lap time.


League Prizes - The races are run over 4 weeks and this means that league positions for both clubs and individuals will count and will be awarded. 

League Prizes

(1) The top 3 male and female runners with the best average timesover the 4 races is awarded with a prize (minimum 3 races to qualify).  

(2) I will also award prizes for Course PB improvers – basically those who show the most percentage improvement over the 4 races.  This targets those who work on their fitness in between each race and strive to get better personal best times.  Again the top 3 men and women from this league will win a prize (minimum 3 races to qualify).  

Each race
Prizes for first 3 Men and Women.
Normal Age Category Prizes  for  Men and Women.
Several spot prizes.

Charity information link

Each year I will donate a percentage of my profits to a different charity.  This year in honour of my Grandma (Joan Mary Lloyd) I am donating to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.  This is a very worthy charity and offers amazing facilities and respite for both patients and families dealing with Cancer and the effects of the illness. 

Collection buckets may also be placed at the different events to ask for further loose change to help with their funds.
