RunNorthwich Boxing Day 5k

The Northwich Boxing Day 5k is a flat and fast chip-timed 5km held on a traffic free route with less than 10m of elevation gain across the entire course.

The race is perfect for all runners whether you are chasing a PB or simply looking to blow away those festive cobwebs and offers the perfect venue to bring friends and family to support you on this 2 lap course.

The course is set in the stunning Neumann’s Flashes which make up part of the Northwich Woodlands in the heart of Cheshire. 

All finishers will receive a Christmas themed medal as well as festive refreshments at the finish line.

Race HQ will be on Marbury Lane (CW9 5LN) next to the start and finish area for the race. There is plenty of available parking in Northwich town centre close by and race HQ will offer baggage drop for those choosing to travel to the race on foot.

There are cash prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd open male and female and prizes for the 1st place masters athlete in all age categories.

Entry is £14 and £12 for UKA members.

This event sold out last year so we don’t expect to be able to offer on the day entries.

Entrants must be 13 or over on race day.

Sorry no dogs or buggies.
