Boxing Day Run

Really pleased to say we are running the ever-popular Pirton Boxing Day Run this year.  And we're also pleased to say the event this year is being sponsored by  Blakeney Estates.

We did manage a series of "virtual" runs last year but we're looking forward to welcoming you all back to a "real" running event. Pretty much the same races and format as previously, however we won't be using timing tags this year. For those wanting to get "official" times and race against each other, we are looking at an alternative app based approach.

Details of online bookings are available on the Pirton Sports and Social Club Facebook page as well as other information
We're looking to run the following races:
  • U7s - 600m
  • U13s - 1km
  • Walkers - 2.5 miles
  • Early Runners - 2.5 miles
  • Main Race - 3.2 miles
With entry prices as follows:
  • 11 for adults
  • 5.50 for U18s
  • 4 for parking.
And the schedule for the morning will look something like this:
  • 09:30 Car Parks, Help Desks open.
  • 10:25 Early Runners 2.5m (short course)
  • 10:35 Under 13s 1km
  • 10:50 Walkers 2.5m (short course in reverse)
  • 11:15 Main Race 3.2m
  • 11:25 Under 7s 600m
  • 12:00 Prize presentation
A bottle of beer will be provided for all 18 and over finishers and a medal for U18s.

Teas, coffees and hot chocolates will be on sale as well.

If you haven't experienced the Boxing Day Run in Pirton either as a runner or as a supporter please come down and join us on the day!
