Severn AC May Virtual 5km challenge

What: An “open” challenge to run the pilot 5km course (see link below) throughout the month of May and submit your best time by 20:00 on 31st May.

When: Multiple attempts can be made throughout May but only one time can be submitted per person before 20:00 of 31st May.

Where: The official course is the same as that run in the standard Severn AC 5km summer series starting at the pilot bridge which can be seen in the link below:
The start/finish line and turning point will be marked on the road throughout May so please use these to measure distance and not your watch.
Those runners that do not live in Gloucester may run either an out and back or loop course near to where they live if it has a similar profile.

Who: All Severn AC members and Gloucestershire runners

Results: Results can be submitted via email to or posted/messaged to the club fb page or by using the club Whatsapp group. Garmin/Suunto/Strava links/screenshots will be accepted as proof of time.

Do not wear headphones.

Keep to the left of the road wherever possible
