The Romsey 5 Mile running race is set within the beautiful grounds of The Broadlands Estate, once the home of The Earl Mountbatten of Burma. The surface is mainly tarmac with a short distance of smooth hardcore. The course is 3 laps of the estate making it one of the flattest 5 mile races in the county and as such attracts athletes from further afield looking for a PB time. This running event is also perfect for first timers just starting out and wanting to try their first running race.
The course will be officially measured by a UKA official, (the certificate has been given as multi-terrain) and a leisurely mass start time of 9am. There will be one water station positioned along the route and competitors will receive a finisher medal and t-shirt as they cross the line.
Award presentations will be after the race and presented to the 1st to 3rd placed competitors (male and female) and 1st male and female in age group categories. Event provides Chip timing, photography and massage so who will be joining us for 2023?!
We are also excited to announce the kids race is back for 2023! 2km distance (1 lap of the course) and starting at 10:45am - this event has everything for the whole family!
This event will also be supporting Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. HIOWAA is an independent Charity that brings an advanced Critical Care Team to the most seriously ill and injured patients in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, giving them the best chance of survival and recovery, when the worst happens. It currently costs £15,000 a day to maintain their life saving service. You can find out more information on what they do HERE
