Fast 5k course on road through beautiful grounds. Perfect for a PB on a spring evening!

Entries for the popular John Carr Series organised by Saltaire Striders are now open via the Racebest website. The series consists of three 5K races held on consecutive Wednesday evenings during May (3rd, 10th and 17th). This race series is a must for all abilities. The speedy can test themselves and the novice can experience a proper race in safety.

There will be prizes for first man, first woman, first male veteran, first female veteran, first male junior and first female junior at each race plus prizes in all age categories for the series. Total time taken to complete all three races to decide prizes.

For 2017 there is a new fast and relatively flat 5k course across the beautiful Yorkshire Water site in Esholt. This year, the race will begin and end at Esholt Hall, a 20 minute walk or 10 minute jog from the Apperley Bridge station end of the Yorkshire Water site.

As with last year, the races will be chip timed by Racebest. The capacity for each race is 450, and the races are very popular, so don’t delay!
