The inaugural Ryton 5 race was held in 2014, where 226 athletes completed the five-mile course. The race was designed and created with the view to give local club runners a chance to race in a new environment at a relatively low cost. It was, and remains, the club’s intention to create a no-frills race, in order to make it accessible as possible for those wanting to race.
Waiting for the first runners to come through on a lovely summer evening in 2016
The course was designed by club members, along with Ray Morgan, Alan Edwards and Stewart Harris; all well-known figures in Warwickshire Athletics.
Since 2014, the numbers of runners taking part has increased with 356 finishers in 2019.
The last race was held on 18th May 2022.
