ROMSEY 5 MILE
Sunday 21st January 2024 | Broadlands Estate
The perfect way to start the New Year! The Romsey 5 Mile running race is set within the beautiful grounds of The Broadlands Estate, once the home of The Earl Mountbatten of Burma. The surface is mainly tarmac with a short distance of smooth hardcore. The course is 3 laps of the estate making it one of the flattest 5 mile races in the county and as such attracts athletes from further afield looking for a PB time. This running event is also perfect for first timers just starting out and wanting to try their first running race.
The course will be officially measured by a UKA official, (the certificate has been given as multi-terrain) and a leisurely mass start time of 9am. There will be one water station positioned along the route and competitors will receive a finisher medal as they cross the line.
Award presentations will be after the race and presented to the 1st to 3rd placed competitors (male and female) and 1st male and female in age group categories. Event provides Chip timing, medal and massage so who will be joining us for 2024? T-shirts can be added as an extra in your basket but must be ordered 4 weeks before the event.
We are also excited to announce the kids race is back for 2024 having been so popular last year. 2km distance (1 lap of the course) and starting at 11:30am - this event has everything for the whole family!
"A great way to start my running year! This is one event I always want to run, great atmosphere, flat course in beautiful grounds, also a superb finishers medal as a souvenir. This is my fourth year! A great event." Racecheck Review 2023
