Sunset 5k update Following Boris announcement Monday it’s a case of “as you were”. Unfortunately, we may have a claim to fame as the final race under restrictions so I think we should make it a special one! However I don’t think it will affect the race format too much. Setting off in waves of 25s in 30 second intervals based on predicted times. Can I ask when entering you enter a true time you feel you can achieve. Anyone entering zero will be entered in to the final wave. Race Format for Sunset 5k 7pm Men’s A race Sub 15:30 Men’s B race Sub 17mins inc Elite Ladies Possibly a C race based on current entries Sub 20 A race Sub 20 B race Further bands in 2 minute predicted times Beat The Sunset 8:15 Again 2 minute predicted times starting from Sub 20 upwards Helpful hints to questions put to me recently when entering. The whole race is Sunset 5k we just have 2 start times 7pm and 8:15pm Sunset 5k General Entry - Enter YES in that box if you want to race at 7pm and be eligible for prizes. Elite entry - Enter YES in the box if you’re fast enough with your PO10 link. Sub 14:30 Men, Sub 16:30 Ladies free entry. If you’re faster email me for a package. Championship Entry - if you want to be eligible for junior/team selection as previously stated then enter YES in that box too Beat The Sunset 5k 8:15pm - if you just want a decent race and “Beat The Sunset” and go for a PB then enter this one by just stating YES in the box. This helps me when I’m looking down 500 entries who’s in what race. Please don’t put / X O 1 just put YES OR NO.

Course The course has been re measured from the past 2 years. This is a one lap flat road course (no paths) on wide roads and uses the former A6 and generally sheltered from trees. There is a slight undulation at 2.5km with the last 2km flat to downhill The final 1km has been changed from the drive passing the start line making it one of the fastest courses in the country!
With just 2 months to plan a road race with a full road closure of the Old A6 Harborough Road we started to organise the Beat The Sunset 5k in September 2018. Fortunately everyone and thanks to the Emergency Services, Highways, West Lodge Farm Park & SAG an event was born. We will return Sunday August 18th 2019 7.30pm. Further details to follow.
