If you're looking for that fast race to get a PB or a training race before
the London Marathon in April, then The Spring Shakespeare is perfect for you.
For newer runners, or those wanting to race a shorter distance, the 5km is ideal.
You also have the advantage of starting with the other runners who will help
carry you along to the finish. Many runners achieve PB's and return to do these
races every year. If you like the Spring Shakespeare, then why not enter the
Summer Shakespeare in July or the Autumn one in November and see how
much faster you can go at the end of the season?
The course is based on a 5km traffic free lap on tarmac and is designed to give
spectators lots of opportunities to cheer you on. With no roads or traffic to
navigate, all you have to do is concentrate on running. Easy. We hope you
enjoy running with us.
The Marathon starts at 10:00, followed by the Half Marathon a few minutes
later folllowed bythe 10k and 5k runners. Registration is approximately 5 minutes
away from the start.
All competitors will receive a finisher's medal and prizes will be awarded to
the 1st, 2nd & 3rd male and female overall in the 10k, Half Marathon and Marathon.
All male and female 10 year age group winners in these races will receive a free
entry into next year's event.
