The Friday 5 is a popular series of 5 mile races and accompanying junior races held on Friday evenings between May and July, across Suffolk and Essex. The races are always family friendly and are a great way to spend a summers evening. Prizes are awarded to individuals and teams at each race, and also for the series as a whole (based on a points system).

All 5 mile races start at 7.30pm. For the start times of junior races please refer to individual club websites.

Entry fees for the 2023 series will remain at £13/£15 (unattached) for seniors and £4 for juniors. The committee are sensitive to the pressures on peoples finances at the moment and everyone felt strongly that we should not put our prices up this year. To do this, against a backdrop of increased overheads, we have taken the decision to stop awarding medals for completion of 4 races. A large proportion of these go uncollected each year, which is both a waste of money and bad for the environment.


Entries for this years series will open on Weds 1st March.
