Boxing Day 5k (Pinewood Trails)

 

Pinewood Trails 5k is a generic name for races in Black Park Country Park and around Pinewood Studios. 

 

Race HQ. Black Park Country Park, SL3 6DS

 

This Boxing Day get rid of those post Christmas hangovers by running them all off on this super Boxing Day 5k race in Black Park Country Park. We have offered you bargain basement entry fees to get you active again without the trimmings. UKA rules and standards apply.

Start time is 9.30.

 

The race is run on well graded trails through scenic woodland and pine forest - even some heathland.

This is not the regular parkrun course. The start will be near Go Ape and run into the north area around the heathland and beyond Pinewood Studios. The ground is suitable for standard trainers. Trail shoes would give no advantage.

 

Cost:  £3.00/£5.00 unaffiliated. Entry on the day available with £2.00 surcharge. Speed up 'on the day' admin by entering before the 23rd December. Save 60% on your entry fee as well.
