5 Mile



Age 15 & over

  • 5 miles road running


A flat, fast 5 mile loop with great PB potential, the course was used by England Athletics for the National 5 mile road race championships in 2019 and has been accurately measured to UK Athletics championship standards. The course takes in a mixture of fast straight roads with a scenic lakeside loop towards the end of the lap. The 5 mile race is a single lap, with the 10 miler taking in 2 laps of the exact 5 mile loop. The race is open to all standards with the 5 mile appealing to runners stepping up from 5k to 10k as well as seasoned runners chasing a fast time on an acknowledged PB course, with the 10 miler the perfect build up race for those participating in Septembers Great North Run. A quality bespoke medal is provided to every participant as well as water stations on the course and at the finish.

This event is part of City of Preston Road Races.
