The Running Festival at Goodwood takes place on Sunday 14th October 2018 and entry is open to what is set to become one of the most iconic running events in the sporting calendar.
Taking place at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit, tickets are already being snapped up by runners eager to race at this stunning estate in the heart of West Sussex.
Nestled at the foot of the South Downs just outside Chichester, Goodwood is home to the world-famous Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and Qatar Goodwood Festival, and is an extremely picturesque location for this thrilling new event on the UK run scene.
Managed by professional running events company UK Run Events, The Running Festival at Goodwood comprises a 10K, a Half Marathon and a Family Lap.
A total of 3,000 places are available for The Running Festival at Goodwood 10K, which covers two and a half laps of the motor racing circuit, and 2,000 places are available for The Running Festival at Goodwood Half Marathon which will see runners complete five and a half laps.
A team of pacers will be running both the 10K and the Half Marathon to help runners achieve their target times. The 10K pacers will cover every 5 minutes from 40 minutes through to 70 minutes. The Half Marathon pacers will cover every 10 minutes from 1 hour 30 to 2 hours 30 minutes.
All 10K and Half Marathon finishers receive a unique medal, technical souvenir t-shirt, free pre and post race massage, free race photos (worth £19.99) powered by Pic2Go UK, a goody bag, plus a fantastic grandstand-themed finish!
The Family Lap covers one lap, or 2.4 miles, of the race circuit and is aimed at young runners aged between 4-16 years. The youngsters will be cheered on by family and friends in the grandstand and enjoy a full finish experience before receiving their unique finisher’s medal. Under 11s need to be accompanied by an adult (who will also receive a medal for completing the race) while those aged 11-16 can run unaccompanied. There will be an enclosed repatriation area and huge support for all participants, making this a celebratory day of running for all ages and abilities.
