Off-road summer running comes to Wimbledon in 2018 with the launch of a new 4-race series of midweek evening races. The series of 8k races starts on Wednesday, 16 May (7.00pm) and there are also June, July and August dates in the programme.
Event HQ is Wibbandune Sports Ground (home of Collier Wood FC) and this will offer a great pre and post-race base. Plus it's an accessible venue close to the A3.
Race organisers promise a flat course - there's one modest incline at 4k - using the many green spaces in the Wimbledon/Coombe area of south-west London. It's a scenic route - grass and trail through parkland - which Londoners are certain to enjoy.
Expect a well marshalled one-loop course with kilometre distance markers along the route.
The event is suitable for runners of all abilities and is an ideal step up in distance for parkrun regulars. In addition the 4-race nature of the challenge is certain to see club runners aim for improved times and course PBs as the series progresses.
Organisers hope to tempt entrants to return and complete multiple races and be part of a sociable series which takes advantage of the club facilities (secure changing, showers and bar) available at Wibbandune.
