Gordon Whelbourn Week

Newark Athletic Club is pleased to announce the return of the Gordon Whelbourn Running Week. After a 2 year absence we are on plan to be back in June 2022 for the eagerly awaited 35th running week. So keep your diary clear for the week of 6th June, find those running shoes and get training!!

Changes at some of our venues and on the routes themselves means some significant differences this year. All runs will be around 5k in distance and for 2022 we won’t be having a social/prizegiving after the Friday run. There are though several pubs in and around Farndon so please feel free to make your own arrangements for post event rehydration!!

Entry forms will be available on the club website, www.newarkathletics.co.uk in due course, once the venues and timings are all confirmed. We encourage entry in advance but on the night entry will be available. We do though ask that you bring a printed and completed entry form with you to reduce queuing. Pay as you go through the week remains an option, and you can of course run as many or as few races as you wish.

Those who run the whole week will get a memento, and prizes will be posted out in the days following the event.

Results will be posted on the club website after the event.

Provisional venues and timings are as follows:

Monday 6 June Tom Mann Pavilion, Sconce Park Starts 7.15pm
Tuesday 7 June Newark Academy, Balderton Starts 7.15pm
Wednesday 8 June Farndon Riverside Starts 7.15pm
Thursday 9 June Tom Mann Pavilion, Sconce Park Starts 7.15pm
Friday 10 June Farndon Riverside Starts 7.15pm

The Farndon and Sconce Park runs will be run on a different route each night.

If you are not running, then all offers to help with marshalling will be gratefully received. Also, you can just come along and support your clubmates by cheering.

Time to get training and we look forward to seeing you in June.
