Organiser's Description

JOIN US FOR THE COLCHESTER CHRISTMAS FAST 1Mile, 5K & 10K ON MONDAY 27TH DECEMBER 2021.

This event will take place on Monday 27th December 2021. This is an ideal venue to chase a fast time as the course is pancake flat and on smooth tarmac. The race will be run under a full UK Athletics License and each course has been officially measured and has a certificate of course accuracy. The race will also be chip timed and results published on Power of 10.

To get into the festive spirit, we want the whole family to join in, so there is also a 1 mile family fun run – festive fancy dress encouraged! This will start 1 minute after the 1 mile race has started and we hope that plenty of young ones will be inspired to take part.
If you’ve already entered another race on the day, you can join in for FREE.

The event takes place at the brand new Northern Gateway Sports Venue in Colchester. With a traffic free, tarmac course around the park we are certain that there will be a whole bunch of proud new festive PB’s!

The closed road circuit is perfect for all standards, no matter whether you are chasing a lightening quick time, a beginner or a junior.
