Make a dash for the Bassingham Bash
There are cash prizes for record breakers.
Any runners interested in the Bassingham Bash 5 Mile Road Race (Sunday 29 August) need to enter sooner rather than later as places are being snapped up for this competitive race. If you have a need for speed this is the event for you!
The course is fast and flat on quiet roads in the Lincolnshire countryside which is music to the ears of the PB chaser and keen athlete alike who will be going for glory on 29 August. There are cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd male and female in the seniors and U23 and for male/female V40 and V50 age categories. This generosity extends to an entry fee refund for any runner who achieves a time bonus.
Also included is a cash bonus for breaking the men’s and women’s course records which currently stand at 24:00, set by Alastair Watson of Notts AC and 27:11 by Cloe Hubbard of Newark AC.
There are two more incentives to go all out. Matt Bowser of MB Complete Clean is offering a cash bonus of £250 to the men’s winner if they smash 23:30. Likewise, DB Wood Financial Planners are offering £250 to the winning female if she beats 26:50 or £100 if she breaks 27 minutes. It is a moment of pain followed by moments of pleasure for the runner who breaks these records.
Any surplus funds from the race are used to develop the athletes of the future.
Online entries close on 24 August so don’t delay if you want to have a crack at the course record or post a PB after months of lockdowns and interrupted training.
