Watch Roger Bannister run his Sub 4 minute mile  here

Wednesday 6th May 2020

We have been running this event since 2014 as an in-house event for Les Croupiers RC, but we decided to open it up in 2018.

It seems more significant now that we had decided to open this event up in 2018, following the death of Sir Roger Bannister on 3rd March 2018, this will now be a double celebration – not only marking the barrier he broke but also the man himself.

The event will be a series of small races which will be seeded after the closing date. 

Registration will take place at the Start/Finish area in Blackweir Playing Fields, meet at the Blackweir Changing Rooms next to the Ambulance Depot on North Road.

ON-LINE ENTRIES     will be opening soon  

Entries close on Sunday 3rd May 2020

Entry Fees:    £4 Affiliated           £6 Non Affiliated


This starts and finishes by Blackweir Changing rooms. You run from the changing rooms, complete the parkrun nursery loop IN REVERSE and run back to the changing rooms.
