Preparations are now well under way for the 2019 races. For 2019, we plan to hold events on the second Tuesday in May (14th), June (11th), July (9th) and August (13th) (so an extra event in May). This is with the view of holding May, June and July as classic 5k races (forming the series) and adding a twist for the August event…… More info will be available soon.

Race #6 of the Wiltshire Road Race League explained……

We are pleased to announce that the Heddington 5k Series (first three races – May 14th, June 11th and July 9th) will together form part of the Wiltshire Road Race League for 2019.

This will involve each individual runner’s best time from any of the three events being entered into a “virtual race result” at the climax of the third event (July).
This means that you will have three attempts at putting your best time forward to represent your club in this WRRL event before the final “virtual result” is entered as race # 6 of the WRRL.

It also gives you an opportunity to monitor your progress throughout the year, attempting to knock seconds off here and there to propel yourself up the “virtual result” standings.

Code of Conduct

Please be polite to all marshals on course, all pedestrians and other road users. Should you withdraw from the event for any reason, please alert one of the event staff and return your racing bib to them. Follow the highway code at all times and ARC rules.
