The Gravesend Floodlit Series is back!
Nice Work is pleased to announce our return to the Gravesend Cyclopark in 2021, for our popular Floodlit series. Due to the postponement of the majority of the Winter Series, we are excited to launch a new nine race series which will run monthly throughout the year from April through to December.
The series offers a unique opportunity to sharpen up your speed work throughout the year. The tarmac course is floodlit and its undulating nature will offer just enough of a challenge whilst still allowing for some fast times. The races are all UK Athletics licenced, accurately measured and traffic free.
The races are suitable for both experienced and first-time runners. They are great training for marathon speedwork, as part of a schedule to complete your first 5K or 10K – perfect too for those just looking for a timed, measured run on a weekday night.
These are no frills events and no medals are awarded. However, we do offer prizes for leading runners and age category winners in the 10k and prizes in the 5k for the first three males and females only. In addition, we will be presenting overall series prizes for the leading three males and females in both races, with the best six races to count.
Entry fees are kept as low as possible, with those taking park in the whole series able to race for under £10 a race. Reduced fees are also on offer for clubs and groups who bring a minimum of six runners to a race.
So why not join us?
· Choice of 5k or 10k at each event
