This is the first race in the three-race series, which takes in a fast and flat course along the seafront and offers a great opportunity for a PB.
There will be medals for all finishers, plus age category prizes and prizes for leading runners available at each race.
There will be a special prize if course records are broken; this prize can only be won once in the series.

The Course The race starts on Marine Parade just south of the Marina Centre. The route proceeds North, around the boating lakes, back down the promenade to the Marina Centre, another lap, then finishes on the promenade. The course is flat, paved and traffic free, but please be aware of vehicles entering and leaving car parks.
First Aid Private medical services 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 centre. Prize giving and presentations will take place approximately 45-60 minutes after the first runner home.
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.
