Downley 5K Run
The Downley 5k this year is on Sunday 23rd June. The race starts at 10.30am. You’ll be collecting your numbers in the Memorial Hall from 9am. £10 for over 16s, £5 for under 16s. We begin with a warm up before making our way to the start. The course begins on the road but you are quickly into nice flat woodland. A lovely downhill section through rolling fields is an opportunity to gain some time. Up and over ‘Echo Valley’ with stunning views of Hughenden. Down through ‘Blue Bell’ wood and towards the toughest section of the run. Two steep hills through the woods are a real challenge for even the most experienced of runners. A nice flat end to the race though and anyone with a fast finish will relish the amazing crowd that awaits you. All funds raised will go to the Downley School and The Downley Day Committee who offer grants to local organisations. Limit of 300 runners, so be quick!
