A Series of Summer evening Road Races

This race series consists of 8 road races, all on summer evenings.

Each runner’s finishing position is calculated by age category, aggregated, & carried forward to the next race in the series. Only the best 5 results are counted, & prizes are awarded both by the promoting Club on each race night, & by the sponsors after the final race, covering age categories & teams. You can register for all eight road races in one go (£58 for England Athletics affiliated Members and £68 for unaffiliated runners) when you enter the first race at Silverstone. This offer closes on 4 May 2019.

Series Team results: Each event organizer can determine his/her prize structure, including team awards. However, for the Grand Prix Series, teams (Men/Vet Men – 4 to score, and Women/Vet Women – 3 to score) must consist of first-claim members of the same England Athletics affiliated club.

More details can be obtained from Mick Bromilow.

All races start at 7:45pm except Silverstone (which starts at 7:30pm).
