Instructions for Runners


The challenge comprises six 5k races, one per month, to be held between April and September.

Competitors do not have to take part in all six races although it is hoped most will.


Runners are asked to pre-register on the event page on the website and submit a 5k time estimate with that registration.  At the race organiser’s discretion, runners can enter on the day, setting off at a time commensurate with their estimate.

Start / Finish

The start and finish is on Magdale Fields.  See map below.


The 5k course is TWO laps.

  • Starting at Magdale Fields
  • Turn right over the white bridge
  • Turn left into Magdale at the road
  • Turn right on the hairpin bend up hill
  • Turn left onto White Gate
  • Turn left back into Magdale
  • Turn right onto the main road (A616)
  • Turn right into the snicket before the petrol station
  • Turn right onto the footpath back towards Magdale Fields

The route will be marked with arrows and the occasional marshal


Each runner will be responsible for recording their own time on an appropriate device (running watch, stop watch, phone etc).

At the end of the two laps each runner is responsible for entering their name & time on the finishers sheet which will be at the start/finish point.

Start times

The races will be handicapped with a staggered start.

Start times will be published on the event page on the website one or two days before the race and also be held at the start.  Runners should be at the start no later than five minutes before their allocated start time.

The first race is self-handicapped (that is runners submit their own estimated time).  Start times for subsequent races will be based on previous actual times.

The first runner is expected to leave at 19:00 with others at intervals until approximately 19:30.

All runners are expected to have finished by 20:00


Results and start times for subsequent races will be published on the website a few days after the race.
