Friday 5 Series 2021 Cancelled

Due to the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty about when they will end, the Friday 5 committee has agreed that it won’t be possible to hold a series this year. Even when lockdown ends, races will likely be required to implement social distancing measures such as wave starts for an unknown period of time. Unfortunately, this isn’t feasible for us given the size of the field, the size of the venues, road closure requirements, and the short timeframe we have available on a Friday evening. We look forward to returning when it is possible to hold races under more normal conditions.

Sudbury Friday 5

Sudbury Friday 5

The Sudbury Friday 5 is the newest of the senior five-mile races added to the Suffolk Friday 5 series in 2018. Returning for the third year was not possible in 2019 and 2020 due to Covid-19. We hope to once again hold a Senior 5-mile, and a Juniors 2km race for the under 15-year-olds, in 2022 when restrictions are reduced.
