Track 5k at Braintree – Date Change

6 August 2019 - By James Blackshaw


The committee has decided to change the date of the 5k race at Braintree Track from Friday the 20th of September to Thursday the 19th of September. The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that it is simply one day earlier. The reasons for the change are as follows:

  • The vast majority of our other 5k races (the summer & winter series) are all on a Thursday.
  • It ensures that people do not do a speed session on the Thursday and then run a fast 5k on the Friday, potentially causing injuries.
  • Love Island Australia 2019 starts on the Friday.


The timing has also had to change, and the first race will start at approximately 8:30pm, but I will provide more details regarding the times in a future posting.

The track 5K will be in place of the usual Thursday effort session, and any potential track session.

This will be your last chance of the year to gain or improve club championship points for a 5K race, so don’t miss out.
