This is going to be such great fun!! Our first ever Christmas event. Music (yes Christmas music), mulled wine, mince pies, cake (essential runners food), reindeer antlers and lots of laughs. 5k or 10k all on tarmac.
The Cyclopark Christmas Cracker is a great way to burn off some excess calories before that hefty Christmas dinner. Bring the family and let them indulge in our onsite catering, free massages, children’s races, themed music and many other holiday activities.
HOWEVER, YOU CAN STILL ENTER ON THE DAY FROM 9AM - 10AM. PLEASE ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO REGISTER AND PICK-UP YOUR NUMBER AND TIMING CHIP. RACE HQ OPENS 9AM. RACE STARTS 10:30AM
Thank you to everyone who has booked so far and we look forward to seeing you all for festive fun!!
