Victoria Park Summer Series 5k

Organised by the Friends of Victoria Park

Summer evening series of four runs for Ashford in a traffic free, park setting.

Every finisher will be awarded a medal.

The fast and slightly undulating course makes this event ideal for setting a new 5k PB – and it’s great too for beginners or those simply looking for a short evening run.

Wednesday 12th June 2019

Course details and First Aid

The Course

The Victoria Park summer series comprises two laps of a course along the paved pathways throughout Victoria Park. The course is slightly undulating, but flat in parts.

First Aid

First aid will be provided by qualified personnel 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.


​Points scored in each race count towards the final series results.

Your individual time and position will be recorded by manual time keepers. We will endeavour to display results as they come into the race centre. Results will be published here as soon as possible after the race. All entrants that have supplied a valid and legible email address will receive a copy of the results as soon as possible after the race.
