Charity 5K Run.

Join us for our annual Charity 5k Fun Run on Wednesday 8 May 2019 at 1830.

The run is in aid of Princess Alice Hospice in Esher. The Hospice have provided free end of life care to adult patients since 1985 and we have now raised over £57,000 for them from our Charity 5k. Please help us add to that total in 2019.

We are excited to announce a new venue for this year at the heart of Mundays’ strong links with the Cobham and Elmbridge communities – to the historic 18th century landscape gardens of Painshill Park in Cobham.  Runners will be able to take in the beautiful vistas across the lake, to the Five Arch Bridge, the Gothic Folly and the vineyard.

This is a great team building event, so bring along your friends or colleagues from work and your supporters. Run as an individual or compete for the team prizes.

The Hospice is expected to run the ever popular cake stall plus we will have chip timing provided by Sports Systems and free professional photographs to download after the event from Sussex Sport Photography. Stay for refreshments after the run also.

The entry fee is £16 but please make an additional donation if you are able to do so.

Location: Painshill Park, Portsmouth Road, Cobham.  There is a car park and the start and finish are a short walk away. The closest satnav postcode is KT11 1AA.

Collection of race numbers and timing chips from 1745 on the night – please arrive well before 1830

When: Wednesday 8 May 2019.  Collection of race numbers from 1745 (these will not be sent out in the post so please arrive early).  The race starts at 1830 and the prizegiving will be at 1915.

Course: The race will start and finish at the Painshill Visitor Centre and include two full anticlockwise laps of the lake. The route is on tarmac and grass and is mainly flat but with some undulations.  Please note that the 5k has not been officially measured.  The path around the lake is narrow in places and marshals will be stationed around the route to guide you during the race.  A map of the course will be available at the start.

Timing/race details: Sports Systems will provide chip timing.  All runners will start at the gun time and finish times will be recorded as the runners cross the finish mat.  Results will be available on the Sports Systems website.

There will be free professional photographs from Sussex Sport Photography available to download after the event.

All runners will received Mundays 5k medals and some race goodies.

Individual prizes will be awarded for the first three male and female runners.  Team prizes will be awarded for the first three teams of three runners each (teams may consist of more than three runners, but only the first three across the line will count).  There will also be prizes for the biggest fundraisers and the largest team.  Runners must register using the same team name to qualify for prizes.

The race is not recommended for juniors under the age of 11, wheelchair users or runners with dogs, as the path is narrow in places and the safety of our runners is paramount.

Facilities at the park

We are finalising the details, but it is hoped that The Princess Alice Hospice will be running the ever popular cake stall with refreshments served after the run.

There is free parking by the Visitor Centre (it would be appreciated if you could car share where possible) and please park as instructed by the car park attendants. The start of the race is a short walk away, past the Visitor Centre.

Toilets are available at the Visitor Centre and there will be place for you to leave your bags (but this is not secure so please do not bring any valuables).
