THE BYFLEET RUNNING FESTIVAL
INSPIRE. FEEL GOOD. RUN.
This is now the fifth year of the Byfleet Running Festival where we are raising funds towards our major project to refurbish, extend and improve the facilities available at St Mary’s Church and Community Hall in Byfleet.
Phase 2 is now almost complete, so this is a final fundraising push to equip our newly refurbished office/meeting rooms.
This year we are also contributing towards the funding for a disabled friendly access path to the church and churchyard as well as recognising our relative wealth by supporting the Bishop of Guildford’s Foundation which funds many projects in deprived areas of Surrey.
The courses are 99% off road using the Wey Navigation and Basingstoke Canal towpaths and both races are fully marshalled and chip timed.
Once again we are pleased that Nuffield Health are supporting us by providing on the day race management as well as prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in both seniors and masters, male and female categories plus all finishers will also receive a medal.
Charges are as follows:
10K race £19.50 start time 10:00am
5K race £12.50 start time 10:06am
Children aged 11+ may enter the 5K or 10K as individual runners (full price).
Children under 11 may run the 5K for £8 by entering on the day, but must run with a full paying parent/guardian.
All runners run at their own risk and all novice/first time runners are advised to book a health check with their GP prior to competing.
We will also have 4 children’s races that can be entered on the day (up to 11am for £3) with medals for all finishers. These will start once the majority of the 10K runners have finished (estimated to be about 11:15am):
Ages 3-5 1 lap
Ages 5-7 2 laps
Ages 7-9 3 laps
Ages 9-11 4 laps
(each lap is approx 320m)
Whether you are a runner or a supporter, the Byfleet Running Festival is a great morning out.
For those running, enjoy either a 5k or 10k run with friends and family along the tow path.
Supporters cheer your loved ones in and give them the support they need to cross that finish line.
The run will start outside the St Mary’s church in Byfleet Surrey, where participants will do a lap of the field, before heading to Conker Arch and climbing the motorway bridge.
Then the course takes you left along the beautiful towpath of the canal, 5Kers will head towards West Byfleet, before turning back.
10k runners will then change course and head towards West Byfleet Lock – before heading on towards Newhaw Lock where they will then return back to Byfleet.
Whether you are a supporter or a volunteer, this is great morning to get involved and take part in the festival without running those miles.
