The Poole Runners Summer Series is six races, each being about 5km, on Wednesday evenings spread over the summer, competitive and licensed under UKA rules (no dogs, buggies, or headphones), however, we encourage all abilities. There is a wide range of category prizes and team trophies presented after the last race. You do not have to be a member of a running club. The approx. 5km route is all within the beautiful Upton County Park, starting and finishing right in front of the main house.
Entry Arrangements for 2021
(Should it be possible to hold the event)
Due to uncertainties regarding COVID regulations etc. it’s currently not possible to predict entry arrangements for the series. Should the current requirements for additional COVID medical cover and the necessity to have “wave starts” requiring the use chip timing still be in place, entry fees will need to rise considerable from past years. Its hoped to make a statement in mid-January
