Naked 5 Miler

We're doing it again in  2024, 02 June, book the date and your place!

Join us on 02 June 2024 for the Kingfisher Harrier’s second annual Naked 5 miler. The course is a 5-mile loop around the Arrow Valley Country Park.

There is no mass start, start when you like (between 9am and 11am). The principal is that before you start you submit an exact time that you expect to finish the course in.

Entry is open to anyone, including non-members and other clubs, and will cost £7 per person. The winner is the person(s) that finishes the race closest to their predicted time. Run, Walk or Jog, it’s up to you. Each participant will be accurately timed.

Two key rules, firstly you are not allowed to use any technology, absolutely no watches, GPS, phones, headphones or any electronic or timing gadgets. Secondly, you must
be dressed, no naked participants please!!
