Community 5k Handicap
Usually held on the second Wednesday of every month during the spring and summer, the 5k Community Trust race is a handicap run with the slower runners starting first, giving everyone a fair chance at winning a trophy. The race is £1 to enter and sets off at around 6.30pm from Sheepbridge Trading Estate and running back to CFC’s stadium, just off Sheffield Road.
The joint venture between North Derbyshire Running Club and Cannon Events aims to raise funds for Chesterfield FC’s Community Trust.
There are trophies awarded for the male and female 1st, 2nd, and 3rd and also male and female most improved (on previous month’s performance), which are kept for the month and returned for the next race. For first time runners we have ‘guides’ available.
The route is the same one used as the original race that began in 2012, although it finishes just outside the stadium. The course is very fast and slightly downhill. Link to view the course route:
