Charity 5K Run.

In light of the current position, and with the safety of participants and our staff of utmost importance, we have postponed this event. We are aiming to reschedule the Run later in 2020 and will update this page in due course.  Sports Systems will be contacting those of you who have entered already, and we thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Mundays organises an annual Charity 5k Run each summer. Over 200 people take part and our team support it in a number of ways including running, marshalling, time keeping or baking for the popular cake stall! The Run is an opportunity for people to contribute to this cause whilst having fun and getting fit. It is open to all ages and abilities, including elite runners, families and businesses. A number of firms choose to enter a team and enjoy competing against their colleagues and friends.

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

!!POSTPONED!! Sports Systems will provide chip timing.  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 receive Mundays 5k medals.  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

The Princess Alice Hospice will be running a cake stall and courtesy of Mundays LLP, there will be a free BBQ after the race for all runners and supporters.

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).  As stated above, the path around the lake is narrow in places so no dogs please.
