5k Series 2011

The dates have been set for this year's series and can be viewed on the 5k page of this web site, (see above).

We have made some quite big changes this year. I have copied the follow from the web page:-

The Harwich Runners 5k Series sees some changes for 2011, it will still be run on a Thursday evening and race HQ is the 4th Dovercourt Sea Scout Hall

As always the junior 1 mile race will start at 7:30pm and the 5k race starts at 8pm

However entries this year will be online & in advance only for the full series. This is just for 2011 & we hope to return to entry on the night in 2012

Only 150 entries will be sold on a first come first served basis. Entries to open shortly so watch this space!

Those of you who regularly take part will notice this year the series starts later, this is to avoid finishing in the dark on the first race, (previously in April). Because of this we have added a date in August. The other major changes are entry online only and in advance for the whole series, plus a limit of 150 runners for the whole series.

We are working on ways of recording finishers more quickly as they cross the finish line to hopefully reduce the congestion of last year. Unfortunately this will not be in place for the first race, hence the need to make the aforementioned changes for this year.

Entry for the junior race is on the night, not online.
Please note although you will have entered and paid before the race night, you MUST report to the desk and register that you are running. Failure to do so will mean you will not have a start time.
