THE 17th KINGSBURY CLASSIC 10km

TUESDAY MAY 9th 2017 : 7.30 pm

We are delighted to be back for the seventeenth time with this classic 10km race through the glorious scenery of Kingsbury Water Park in Warwickshire : two laps of footpaths, grass tracks and a short tarmac section twisting around the lakes and pools of the water park, with a section alongside the river.  We are again grateful to PEEL ROAD RUNNERS who have agreed to assist us with marshalling duties on the night, ensuring a pleasant , problem-free event for everyone.

Your entry fee still includes car parking which would otherwise cost you £4.50.  Full race details, and previous results, are all available below.

ON-LINE ENTRIES AVAILABLE AT www.runnersworld.co.uk
