For details of forthcoming runs, please see the right hand side of this page.
Please note that these runs are not organised by Spectrum Striders RC. The runs are organised by members of Spectrum Striders and other work colleagues & friends.
Unlike many other charity runs, all of the entry money is donated to a charity and some people also raise sponsorship to increase their donation.
The total amount raised after 33 runs is over £22000, all of which was donated to the various charities.
Everyone involved in the race organisation donates their effort for free – race organisers, people who take entries, marshals. There is often a small gift to finishers (e.g. cereal bar, fruit), donated by a local company.
The runs are during midweek lunchtimes, usually on Friday, at 12:30pm. The runs are often substantial events as you can see from the numbers of finishers.
The course is always the same 5k course as for the well-established Forest Park Ladies-only 5k race held every July. To see details of the route, click on the small map to the lower right of this page.
