Chippenham Harriers River Run 2021
28 July 2021
Entries are now closed for this event and there will be no on the day entries
The River Run is back for 2021!
Due to these unprecedented times, we have opted to offer a more low key race this year. Initially there will be 150 places available in the 5k and 50 in the Fun Run, and both will start in waves. If restrictions ease and guidance changes we might be able to offer more entries to the races or change how the runners set off - we will update as soon as we know.
The 5k River Run and 2k Fun Run follow a largely traffic free multi-terrain route along the banks of the River Avon, starting and finishing in Monkton Park, near the Olympiad Leisure Centre.
The River Run is a great community event which attracts people of all abilities and ages. The 5k distance means that it is ideal for the beginners and the inclusion of the Fun Run makes it the perfect summer evening event for families. The 5k is open to anyone aged 13 and over and the Fun Run is for 4 - 14 year olds.
Prizes in age categories for both races.
All 5K finishers will receive a Lacock Dairy ice cream 120 ml tub (https://lacockdairy.co.uk)
All Fun Run finishers receive a medal.
River Run entries are £6 (affiliated) or £8 (unaffiliated)
All Fun Run entries are £5 .
Note additional administration fee applies for on-line entries.
Fun Run starts 6:30pm,
River Run start 7.30pm.
ARC Rules Apply. (ARC race permit 21/012.) Online Entries close on 25th July. Currently there will be no day entries available for either race but we might update this after 19th July. We will have a waiting list if we reach 150 entries to the 5k and will contact those people if restrictions ease and we can welcome more runners to the event. You enter the race at your own risk and the organisers will not be responsible for any injuries or loss of property at any time.
In the event of cancellation due to reasons outside the organisers control, refunds will not be possible.
