Hereford Couriers 5k Series

For the benefit of all our new members see below details of Hereford Couriers 5K series. Entry Forms are downloadable off the hereford couriers web site.

Please remember that the 1st race only counts towards the Wye Valley Runners Summer Club Championship. The race represents excellent value particularly for those looking to a first race with an advance entry fee of just £3. It's a good way for new runners to get some race experience and put a marker down for future races. No pressure just focus on getting around the course. Lets see a big turnout.
