10K and 5K Race Route and Finish:
10K and 5K Race Route and Finish – no changes from last year.
Both the 10K and 5K races have the same Start and Finish lines. The Start Line is out on the road and the Finish Line is in Wythall Park. See Map.
The 10K race is 2 laps of the 5K route, so when approaching the park at the end of the first lap the 10k runners should keep left, staying on the road to head off for a second lap. 5K runners, and 10K runners at the end of their second lap – head in to the park to the Finish Line.
We are introducing Chip Timing to the 5k and 10k races this year.
Everyone will be issued with a disposable chip timing tag at registration. This should be fixed around the laces of your shoe – see photos at registration.
The Chip Timing is being provided by Tempo Events, experts in event timing, from fun runs to marathons, triathlons and beyond.
There will then be a timing mat across both the Start and Finish lines which log exactly when you cross. The mat at the Start line means your time is from when you actually cross the line, not from the starting hooter – so now you can really challenge those PBs!
Remember: No Chip = No entry in the results lists!
So please ensure they are fitted securely.
Using this we hope to hold the winners award ceremonies shortly after the race.
Full results should then be published on our website within 24-48 hours.

Note: Due to the mass of people finishing all very close together, we won’t be attempting to record finish times for the Fun Run this year. The “inter-schools cup” will still be awarded to the first local school to get 6 runners home.
