Winter 5k – Race 2 – Colchester Gateway

20 January 2023 - By Jodee Mayer

Our next Winter 5k will take place on Thursday 26 January 2023 from 7pm (see further below). This will replace the usual speed development session. 

Runners: The time trial is for all members and is free of charge for all members. Please do sign up below so that we know how many runners to expect (and how many lap counters we will need). If you have any queries about time trials do speak to a member of the coaching team.

Venue: Colchester Gateway, Cuckoo Farm Way, Colchester, CO4 5YX. There is car parking on site. If you can offer a lift, or need a lift, please comment below or on the Facebook page.  Car sharing, as always, is encouraged.

Time: We do not have access to the track until 7:00pm, but we will be there at around 6.50pm to hand out numbers. If you want to warm up before 7pm please do not use the track. The race will start at approx 7:10pm – we have the track booked until 8pm and this should allow most, if not all, to complete a 5k time trial if they wish.

Volunteers: We will need some lap counters please – only 5 laps this time! – as well as some people to help with finish times, and a marshal or two for the turn points would be nice if we have enough volunteers. Thank you to those who have already indicated they can help with the time trial. If you could sign up below and put something after your name (vol for e.g.) so that I know you want to kindly give up your time to help put the time trial on I would be grateful.

Course: 1km loop as per the picture below – this is the same course as the ATW 5k in August for those that took part – I am hoping the weather will be slightly cooler… We will hopefully have a marshal on the turn point. You will have someone counting your laps as above. The loop is about as flat as you can get and has meant some fast times on the course before.

So in summary then:

Location: Colchester Gateway, Cuckoo Farm Way, Colchester, CO4 5YX

Date & Time: Thursday 26 January 2023, Race starts at 7.10pm (please arrive prior to the start time to collect your number and warm up).

Distance: 5km

See you all there!
