Quayside 5k & Junior 3k Elite Entries
We welcome all runners to our event from beginners in their first race, to local international runners and we are committed to helping all runners at all levels to achieve a PB in our event.
In the A-Race we have a generous prize structure and elite entry as detailed below to continue to strengthen our reputation as the strongest 5km race in the region.
In the B-Race have recruited PB Pacers who will run at a set pace from 20mins to 50mins with as many minutes covered from 20-50mins as we can – some of our volunteers will have ran in the A-Race and want to help others to a PB after their race!
We are committed to supporting junior grassroots athletics by reducing financial barriers to entry, and would like to develop top level junior athletics competition.
As well as reducing the cost of entry to £5 and offering prizemoney, we would like to invite all top North East Junior athletes to compete in the event with a free Elite Junior Entry provided they meet the criteria below in the last 12 months.
