GWR Towpath Series
2020 ENTRIES NOW OPEN!
For 2020 we are delighted to once again have the use of the sports centre at Ashton Park School as our HQ, where parking, changing, and toilet facilities will be available for all competitors.
The gates at Race HQ will be locked at 9.15 pm so PLEASE remove your car before then to avoid getting locked in!
There is a short walk to the start of about 10 mins, so please leave yourself a bit of extra time to be ready at the underpass for the 7:30 start
Please make sure you collect your race number (after entering online) or enter on the night before 7:15
This is a highly popular series of 10K events (with a 5K to finish off with!)
Whether you feel up to the challenge of all four races or just want to enter one or two when you have a spare Friday night, please do come along.
The GWR Towpath Series consists of three 10K races and a final 5K held between June and August.
In addition, an invitation-only mob match between local clubs and running groups is held in the middle of the series
