This series of 5 races on 5 nights, with accompanying FREE fun runs for children, just gets more popular each year and more & more friendships develop over the week. For those who have not run in it before, it is unusual in that it includes a time trial on Thursday and the final race is a handicap, based on times recorded in the week, where all of the runners should cross the line together?
The entry fee is £18 for the Series in advance or £20 on the day or £4 .50 a race in advance or £5 on the day. The increase in entry fees is because Epsom Ewell Borough Council are now charging just for running in their parks…….at a time when government, national and local authorities, are supposedly encouraging people to get fitter and take part in active recreation!!
