Dinton Pastures Country Park is hosting its annual Summer Series of 5km and 10km runs, organised in partnership with Bracknell-based Barnes Fitness.
Residents are invited to take part and have fun in the next two races starting on Thursday 8 July at 7.30pm and Thursday 12 August at 7pm.
Set within the picturesque grounds of Dinton Pastures, the course is a clearly marked, off-road, traffic-free route, where runners can choose to run either 5km or 10km courses. Summer Series is a friendly, well-established event suitable for runners of all abilities and open to those aged 13 years and over for the 5km event, and 16 years and over for the 10km event.
Cllr Parry Batth, executive member for environment and leisure, said: “We support our residents to lead happy, healthy lives and I am delighted that the Summer Series is back for another successful year. The events are safe to attend with one-way systems and hand sanitising stations in place and have already been a great turn out so far. With two upcoming events this summer, we are expecting more runners to compete. Whether you take part in marathons or run for fun, Dinton Pastures’ Summer Series is suitable for all.”
There will be event trophies and overall series prizes for the first, second and third male and female runners, and the first V40/50/60/70 male and female runners.
Residents who cross the finish line can instantly see their result and will receive a commemorative inter-connecting medal upon completion (option to dedicate a tree is also available). Fresh fruit and free event photographs will also be available on the day.
Bookings are open and can be booked on the Barnes Fitness website.
