Race Listing

Santa runner

Boxing Day may be a day of putting your feet up and watching a boxset for some, but for runners there are races to be run! Saltwood Boxing Day Charity Fun Run returns for its 41st year. The race features three miles of mud and hills. Also on Saturday, the Crown to Crown 5K series returns for its December event. The action keeps going on Sunday with the nuttily named Plain Crazy, featuring a new cross country element. The Twixmas 10K Off Road comes to Hampshire, taking runners along the shoreline and up to the front of Cams Hall with lovely views across Fareham Creek. And as 2015 nears the finish line, what better way to mark the occasion than by running at the End of Year 10 Mile in Staplehurst, Kent. Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
