Peter Chillingworth, Mayor of Colchester invites you to take part in a 5 km run at the Essex University Colchester campus.
All proceeds will go to the six Mayor’s charities: Essex Wildlife Trust, Colchester Emergency Night Shelter, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity, Action for Family Carers and ABF The Soldiers’ Charity.
The course is on University land and comprises grassland, woodland and hard paths and is not suitable for spikes. For safety reasons, no headphones please. Electronic chip timing organised by Nice Work will provide all finishers with an accurate time. Six trophies will be awarded to the first three men and first three women; all finishers will receive medals.
Entry is open for anyone 15 or over. Children between 12 and 14 may run if accompanied by an adult runner. When collecting your number, please state your likely finishing time to ensure an appropriate place at the start.
Entries closing at midnight on 23 February. No entries on the day; the run will be limited to the first 1000 entries, including the University Students Union allocation of 100 runners.
Numbers to be collected from the pavilion, so please arrive in good time.
If travelling by road, please arrive via Colchester Road, Wivenhoe and right into Boundary Road. Parking will be close to the University playing pitch pavilion and start/finish.
