Sunday 23rd October is the annual Fleet 5+10k run in Calthorpe Park and many local runners will be out in force to complete the challenging race.
The race kicks off at 10am in Fleet Town Centre, outside the Harlington Centre. The 5k route passes through the town centre towards the station, then into Elvetham Road, Reading Road North and once more into Fleet Road. Those running 10k complete two laps of the course. The route is on public roads and allows a fast pace so that some runners can push themselves to achieve a personal best.
Last year nearly 1,000 runners took part in both the 5k and 10k events and Fleet high street was packed on both sides with supporters. Entries for this year’s race are still open so it you fancy a challenge then now could be the time to sign up online. Entries close on Monday 10th October or before if the race limit is reached. The race costs £12 or £14, depending on your affiliation, and could be your best achievement yet.
