The Salcey Forest 10k & 5k

Start line opens:  09.30
Start line closes:  10.30

After a successful debut in 2019 join us for the return of this 10k and 5k event after a Covid-enforced absence of a year. 

The event uses the relatively flat forest paths and trails in and around Salcey Forest and because of the nature of the course, the races are ideal for runners of all abilities, from novices to experienced athletes and is perfect for spring marathon training.

The courses use the hard track tracks and trails within the forest and, if weather conditions are good, normal trainers will be suitable. The forest provides ample tree cover, if the weather is warm.

There will be bespoke medals plus prizes on offer to leading men and ladies and a variety of age category prizes and team prizes for both male and female (3 to score).
Important race update

Due to the government announcement on Monday 14th June, that Covid restrictions must remain in place for at least four more weeks, this event will now adopt our Covid 19 race protocols. All entrants will be emailed with details of the protocols that have been put in place. The main affect of these is the need for rolling or wave starts and we will, therefore be operating open start lines.
Full details will be emailed to you but you can view our Covid protocols here.
