2018 Silchester Association Fun Run

Please put May 12 in your diary for our annual fun run whether you are a potential runner or kind enough to be a marshal or helper.

The run is later this year so that we can enjoy the now traditional walking of the course by the marshals on the Bank Holiday Monday on May 7 and also avoid a clash with the Village Market on Saturday May 5.

There will be two races again this year of 2.5 and 5 miles on our established routes around the Silchester Roman Site and the woods of Benyon’s Enclosure. All finishers will get a medal, water and banana plus trophies for the following categories:

2.5mile Race

12 and Under Boys                 1st, 2nd and 3rd place

12 and Under Girls                 1st, 2nd and 3rd place

5mile Race

Male                                        1st, 2nd and 3rd

Female                                     1st, 2nd and 3rd

16 and Under Boys                 1st, 2nd and 3rd

16 and Under Girls                 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Male Vet (50 and over)           1st

Female Vet (50 and over)        1st

We will be encouraging participants to register in advance with discounted prices to avoid queuing on the day as we hope to have around 500 runners again. (on-line through Event Brite or by paper entry downloadable from the Association’s website and there will be forms in the March and April magazines)

To help with the finish and award of trophies we are introducing chip timing this year which will simplify the process and give runners their times straight away.

There will be plenty to eat and drink with the Pop Up café serving teas, coffees, and cake; a bar serving real ale and a barbecue.

Following the success of last year’s event there will be the traditional fun zone; hosted by Circus Sensible. There will be music, car parking and bike racks and we are hoping for another really good family day in the village.
