Aspire Running Events Ltd are extremely proud to announce a further summer event at the stunning Old Down Estate for 2018.
This event will be held on Sunday 5th August and this will include a one loop 5k, a two loop 10k plus Fun Runs - An all ages and abilities 1k which is great fun for the whole family plus our very popular free 5’s and under 50m dash.
Old Down Estate
50m – 10am
1k – 10:10am
10k – 10:30am
5k – 10:35am

5k – £15/£13
1k – £7 (Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to support, free of charge)
50m – Free! (Parents/Guardians are more than welcome to support their little ones in this race)
***Due to the ever-growing popularity of the 1k and 50m races which sell out at every event, we have decided to introduce a fair rule policy.
Therefore, children can enter either the 1k or 50m dash BUT not enter both at the same event.
We wish as many little ones as possible to gain a race experience and therefore receive a medal at the end of it and we think the above is fair to all.***
10k – Adults (Children aged 15 and over can enter if accompanied by a responsible adult)
5k – Adults (Children aged 12 and over can enter if accompanied by a responsible adult)
1k – All ages and abilities
50m – 5’s and under only
5/10k route: This course isn’t flat…. It’s tough, it’s hilly and it’s probably going to be a tad muddy too!
5/10k: The 5k/10k (2 loop 5k) which is a multi-terrain and off road course. It begins in the idyllic grounds of Old Down Country Park before heading out for a superb 1.5 mile woodland section which can become very muddy and challenging!! The course then takes in some fantastic open countryside before heading back into the woods for the uphill section leading back into the park. The course then takes in the amazing grounds of Old Down Country Park before heading to the finish line.
1K: The 1k will also be an off road course, again taking in the beautiful grounds of the Country Park but this time will be on flat terrain. This is open to anyone of any age or ability and they can either run, jog or walk around the course. This will also be buggy friendly.
50m: The 5’s and under 50m will be on flat grass within the Adventure Play area of the Park.
Registration will open at 9am for competitors to collect their race numbers, which will be filed in surname order. (Pins will be provided) Registration will close at 10:20am.
At 10am the fun begins. The 1k and the under 5’s 50m will both be completed before the 5/10k races begin.
All finishers (including the 50m entrants) will receive a medal.
