HISTORY

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.

Since 2014, the numbers of runners taking part has increased with 356 finishers in 2019.

The last race was held on 23rd May 2019.
