Friday 5 Series

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 summer’s evening.

Prizes are awarded to individuals and teams at each race, and also for the series as a whole (based on a points system).
