Boscombe Four Race Winter Series 2022/23

 Poole Runners is pleased to announce its intention to reintroduce the “Poole Runners Winter Series” (aka the “Boscombe 5k”) in 2022. The last series was held on Friday evenings from 1989 to 2015. The races will be on Tuesday evenings at 7:15pm and organised under full UK Athletics Road Race guidelines and have both a race permit and course measurement certificate to allow times to be displayed on the Power of 10 site.

The course is fast, straight and flat giving competitors the opportunity for fast times to be recorded and maybe be includes in national rankings.

Current thinking is “no on site” administration. Entries will be “on -line only at £25 for the whole series.

Proposed dates ( All Tuesdays)  are:-Nov 15th , Dec 13th 2022  and Jan 17th and Feb 21st  2023

 BCP Council has confirmed that they are happy with these dates and, subject to  the  risk assessment being accepted the series looks likely to go ahead
