Romsey 5 Mile 2021

24 Jan 2021 / 09:00

The Romsey 5 Mile Run is set within the grounds of The Broadlands Estate, once the home of The Earl Mountbatten of Burma. The surface is mainly tarmac with a short distance of smooth hardcore. The course is 3 laps of the estate making it one of the flattest 5 mile races in the county and as such attracts athletes from further afield looking for a PB time. This running event is also perfect for first timers just starting out. We are making changes to Romsey 5 so we can still go ahead in this COVID-19 world! Working with Broadlands we now have the venue all day. This means we can run the event! The run will work as a series of mini races (Waves) happening throughout the day. When you enter you will be asked to submit your predicted finish time and from there we will allocate your wave. For example Wave 1 - Start time 08:15am for sub 40 min runners Wave 2 - Start time 09:00am for sub 45 mins runners And so on … Wave 6 Start time 2pm for sub 90 mins runners Each wave will be a rolling start where small groups will be let off at intervals all maintaining the social distancing rules. Numbers will be heavily restricted and no spectators will be allowed into the venue. Other measures that will be put in place are as follows. Posting of race numbers and chips - You need to enter 3 weeks before the event date so we can post your number to you. There will be an option to collect your number in the week leading up to the event from our office in Netley. This will reduce the number of people queuing at registration. COVID Health screening All runners will have to complete a health screening questionnaire 7 days before event date and anyone who has to self isolate or has symptoms will not be able to take part. This information is also stored for track and trace purposes. (Marshals and crew will go through the same process) Face Coverings. All persons at the venue will be asked to wear a face covering when not racing. No bag drop or Key drop This removes the risk of touch transmission. No Water stop. Following the UKA guidelines water will only be available at the end of the race. Self service medals and t-shirts Medals and tees will be laid out on tables for you to collect. Hand Sanitizing There will be hand gel available before you enter the loos and available at the event village. We have delivered a running event since the easing of lock down and it was a great experience. The runners actually enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere at the start! The course is being measured again on 2nd December and UKA licence has been applied for. As numbers are restricted we do encourage you to enter soon! Dont forget that if for some reason you cant make it on race day you can transfer your place to another via the my.challenging.events system Look forward to seeing you on the start line!
