Fast flat Road Race on Town & Countryside closed roads Sunday July 18th 2021 7pm
Update: The race has been put back further to Sunday July 18th 7pm. Fingers crossed this will be the last time it needs to be put back this year. A Covid RA plan is already in place developed with Health & Safety at Run Britain and UKA. This is also dependant on final approval from Kettering Borough Council Public Health. I will update as soon as soon as possible including entry details.
Thursday 3rd December Sunset 5k; I will be looking to restage this in the Spring on Sunday April 25th start time 7pm. Depending on the situation at the time will be dependant on how or if the race will be held. I will update as soon as it is possible.
Unfortunately Public Health has blocked this years race due to rising local Covid levels.

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.
