About The Leicester City 5k Summer Series - Race 4

This popular summer series returns for the seventh year. A fast two lap circuit, using an accurately measured 5K course, the race would suit runners of all standards including beginners. The race carries a UKA licence.
This is the fourth and final race in the 2018 series, with the previous races taking place in May, June and July.
Prizes and trophies will be awarded to the leading runners and age category winners, plus team prizes and a special series prize for 1st Male and 1st Female across all races. The series comprises four 5K races and points are awarded by race position, with the best three races counting towards the series results.

The Course
The Leicester City 5k course is a two lap route covering the tarmac paths within the boundaries of Victoria Park. The course has been officially measured and carries a certificate of course accuracy (certificate number: 12/186). The route will be clearly marked using large route arrows and directional cones, as well as being marshalled throughout. The route is a flat course with only one gentle incline to contend with. We would ask you to remember that we do not have exclusive use of the park and you should be aware that other park users will be on the course.
First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep runner following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for. 

Race Location: Victoria Park, London Road, Leicester LE2 1ND
Victoria Park is accessible by car, train and bus - and, of course, on foot and by bicycle. The race starts close to the Cenotaph with the Race HQ around 100 yards away towards the University of Leicester.
The park is easily accessible by foot. You can enter the park from London Road, Victoria Park Road or via the University. The park is located very close to Leicester Railway Station and it is only a 15 minute walk from there to the park via London Road.
For those who wish to drive to the event, there is very limited parking available on Victoria Park Road and London Road.
