This popular winter evening series returns in 2016 for a fifth year.
A unique opportunity to sharpen up your speedwork on those dark winter nights. This tarmac course is floodlit and its undulating nature will offer just enough of a challenge whilst still allowing for some fast times. Book your slot by the race, in blocks of three or buy a season ticket for all six races. No medals for each race but a large variety of prizes are on offer.
The races are great for Spring marathon training and for a speedwork session, as part of a schedule to complete your first 5K and/or 10K - or for those just looking for a timed and measured run on a weekday winter's night.
The 10K four lap race and 5K two lap races use the tarmac cycling track located within the Cyclopark facility near Gravesend. The self contained venue also incorporates plenty of car parking, great spectator viewing and refreshment facilities, toilets and changing rooms. The races are on a traffic-free undulating course and suitable for all abilities.
Plus for 2016 - a new improved prize structure for both races.
Prizes for leading runners and age category winners in the 10k
Prizes for first three male and female in the 5k
Overall series prize for leading three male and female in both races with best five races to count
Monthly leader board by age category for both races
Prizes for age category course records being broken
Spot prizes for those runners showing the best improvements
