We are pleased to announce that the Overton 5 will be happening on Sunday the 4th September on a new and improved route. Entries will open in early July
Once again we are pleased to host the first event of the 2016/17 Hampshire Road Race League at 14.00 on the 4th September. This year will be the 28th running of the Overton 5 and it would not happen without the help and dedication of our officials, volunteers and supporters.
To make this a family friendly day we will as usual be hosting children’s races on the field at Race HQ from 13.00. We will also have refreshment stalls, an ice-cream van and the bar open so it will be ideal for a family picnic before or after the race.
Entry fees for the Overton 5 will be £13 for affiliated runners, £15 for non-affiliated. As the race sold out last year we are expecting the race to sell out so enter early to avoid disappointment.
Race and New Course Details
The five mile race is now on a new flatter faster course that is on fully closed or traffic managed roads that show off the wonderful countryside around Overton. This will mean that the start is a short 10-15 minute walk (ideal 5-9 minute warm up run) from the finish and Race HQ and this will be sign posted the day. The course map and elevation profile are below.
