2020 Series Announcement

The 2020 Park Race series will most likely not go ahead due to the need to practice social distancing
and pub/park closures arising from the Covid-19 epidemic. In the (unlikely) event of a rapid return to normality
keep an eye on this page for special announcements, otherwise, we hope to see you in 2021. - Oliver O'Brien, SLOW.

£ Races normally have registration/start times between 6:00pm and 7:30pm

£ Most races have two courses - normally around 2.5km and 5km

£ Most of the races are in parkland, so competing in a T-shirt and trainers will normally be fine
Full leg cover may put you at a slight advantage for a couple of the events.
£ Most races are £3-£4 for BOF members with their own SI card, and £5 for everyone else (including hire of an SI card if needed).
