Robertsbridge Bonfire Society
Next Race: 21/06/2024
Robertsbridge Rec Ground, The Clappers, Robertsbridge, East Sussex, TN32 5AA
A midsummer evening that fizzes with racing delight, community spirit & family fun... we've got that covered and you're invited!
This is a Partner race
This means that we are working with a host partner organisation and provide timing and/or race management services for their event.
The Robertsbridge Bonfire Society return to present another wonderful instalment of their much-loved Midsummer 10k & 5k race around the pretty East Sussex village of Robertsbridge. This is community affair and one for all the family. It enjoys fantastic local support with some super volunteer marshals to cheer and guide the runners and a mouth-watering BBQ to keep you racing-fit and your tastebuds crackling in delight. Resonating with some proper summer evening vibes, there is also a bar available for post-race re-hydration!
The race is open to runners of all abilities and is an ideal opportunity for those who are looking to complete their first 5k or 10k.
There will also be a Junior race shortly before the start of the main race to inspire our younger racers! We hope that you'll join us in cheering them across the finish line with great gusto! All finishers of the Junior race receive a medal and a packet of haribos.
All three races will kick off from Robertsbridge Rec Ground. This is an undulating route that will take place on the traffic-free paths and tracks within and surrounding the village, including a mix of road and trail sections. The 10k consists of two laps, whilst 5k runners will complete one lap.
You can view the route map here. You'll be able to download the route in different formats including GPX.
