Summer Shakespeare 5km, 10km, & Half Marathon (Run)

Starts Sat 29 Jul 2017 09:00, Finishes Sat 29 Jul 2017 14:00

The Spring and Autumn Shakespeare events have been so popular that Raceways have decided to offer you the opportunity to go for a Summer PB as well, however, the Summer Shakespeare will not include the Marathon. For newer runners, or those wanting to race a shorter distance, the 5km is ideal. You also have the advantage of starting with the other runners who will help carry you along to the finish.

It starts with the other main races at 11.00 am, so you can run alongside more experienced runners. We've had many runners achieving their personal best times and return to do these races every year. If you liked the Autumn and Spring Shakespeare, then why not enter the Summer event in July and see how much faster you can go mid Summer?

The route is 5 kilometers long, 10K (two laps), half marathon (four laps), and the full marathon which will last 8 and a bit laps of Long Marston Airfield, are designed to give spectators lots of opportunities to cheer you on as you pass by. With no roads or traffic to navigate, all you have to do  is concentrate on running. Easy. We hope you enjoy the course and we look forward to you running with us.

All the races start at the same time - 11.00 am - and follow a 5K route. The 10km and half marathon loop round  two or four times. The Kids Fun Run starts at 10.15 and the route is adjacent to the main course.

As well as having fun while running, Saturday’s race will also help to support the Leamington based non profit making organisation ‘Kids Run Free’ which is designed to encourage children towards running in the current climate of rising childhood obesity and cut backs in school sports funding.

Kids Run Free also hosts FREE running races for toddlers to teenagers (0-16 years) on the first Saturday of every month in the West Midlands and aims to host free races all across England by the end of 2016.

At the 2015 event, the weather was cloudy and cool with just a modest breeze allowing for some fantastic times on the course. The runners have the raceway to themselves and the multiple laps allow for pit-stops for refreshments and easy-access family support on the route! So start the year right with a PB! Further information regarding entry fees and registration details can be found at
