THE COURSE

Dick Whittington 4

  • May 20th 2021
  • 5k trail route
  • Canicross entries welcome
  • Registration opens at 5pm
  • Race start 6.00pm
  • Entry £12
  • Finishers medal for each participant

RACE UPDATE 

A part of the woodland has changed ownership recently with permission withdrawn to allow the run through this part of the route.  There was no other way to reroute this so we have had to start again and design a completely new route for you all.  The run is now slightly shorter, just over 5k.  It still has challenging hills and beautiful views and amazing woodland and MUD…. we are sure you will love it!

‘As a result of Covid-19 and following Government advice we have taken the decision to postpone the Dick Whittington 4 race on May 14th to a new date of May 20th 2021 @ 6pm. Entries will be open for this event until May 18th 2021.  To keep you all as safe as possible we have reduced the number of entrants and will set you off in waves of 30, 6 minutes apart.  For this reason we have moved the start time to 6.30pm for the first wave.  It will still be a race, when the last person crosses the line all times and finish places will be adjusted and you will be able to get your print out then.  

All registered runners have automatically been transferred to the new date of May 20th 2021, sadly no refunds will be offered. However, for for those who cannot make this date we will offer you the option to do this as a virtual race, just email your name and proof of running 5K to registrations@finish-line-events.co.uk during the month of May and we will send you the medal in the post.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

Stay safe and keep moving where safe to do so
