After a Covid-induced absence of more than a year, the Gosport 5k Summer Series returns to Stokes Bay, with a revised four race monthly series starting in May.
The race offers a fast, out and back promenade run using an accurately measured 5k course, ideal for beginners and experienced runners alike.
This is the second race in the series, with further races on Tuesdays in May, August and September. You can enter each race individually or save money and buy a three or four race season ticket.
If you purchase a four race season ticket you will gain a free souvenir technical t-shirt.
There will be a Children's 1k sprint at each race at 7.15pm which will be chip timed!
The main 5k race follows this.
Medals for all finishers plus prizes for race winners and winners of vet categories 1 to 7, plus a special series prize for the 1st male and female.
Series points are based on your best three results.
The 2021 dates are as follows:
Tuesday 8th June
Tuesday 13th July
Tuesday 10th August
Tuesday 7th September
On Site Parking
Baggage may be left with race organisers
The Gosport 5k will start from a point close to the Bayside Cabin Café and cover an out and back route along the promenade, onto a country path around Fort Gilkicker before returning to the start. A very short section of the route is on a shingle pathway, but this is only a few metres.
First Aid St John Ambulance will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.
Your individual time and position will be recorded by your electronic chip. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race headquarters. Results will be uploaded to www.nice-work.org.uk as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
Race HQ: adjacent to the Bayside Cabin Café, Stokes Bay Road, Gosport PO12 2QT.
There is plenty of car parking available along the sea front, but please pay attention to any parking restrictions and remember to pay the appropriate rate where applicable.
The closest railway station is Portsmouth Harbour and the promenade is served by local buses.
