Bottoms Up 5K Cup

Bottoms Up!

This multi-terrain 5K race ticks plenty of boxes this July...

Despite the name, you'd be better saving the celebrations until the end of this summertime, multi-terrain race! The Bottoms Up Cup 5K is back this July (9th) at Princess Anne Park in Washington.That's Washington, Tyne & Wear just in case you wondered about the logistics of crossing the Atlantic for a 5K race!

The Bottoms Up Cup 5K is named after the late Stephen Bottoms, who was an original member of Washington Running Club before the club reformed in 2014. It is a challenging, undulating route round Washington, starting on the C2C cycle path which leads round to the trails of Princess Anne Park. 

This annual 5K multi-terrain race is great for all levels and a fantastic day for the family with competitions/raffles and a huge money raiser for charity. There is also a 1 mile fun run with entries on the day which will be held after the main race.

A spokesperson from the organising club commented: "The course has changed slightly over the years to a faster/less congested route but it wouldn’t be a Washington Running Club event without a few naughty hills and some trail (road shoes are suitable though as most of the race will be on pavement).

"Come and join us for a superb morning's running with our friendly club!"
