The Colchester Fast

JOIN US FOR THE COLCHESTER FAST 3K, 5K & 10K ON SATURDAY 28TH AUGUST 2021.
This event will take place on Saturday 28th August 2021. This is an ideal venue to chase a fast time as the course is pancake flat and on smooth tarmac. The race will be run under a full UK Athletics License and each course has been officially measured and has a certificate of course accuracy. The race will also be chip timed and results published on Power of 10.
The event takes place at the brand new Northern Gateway Sports Venue in Colchester. With a traffic free, tarmac course around the park we are certain that there will be a whole bunch of proud new PB’s on 28th August!
