Stafford Boat Club is the HQ for the new Wildwood 10K and 5K

Climb aboard for the new Wildwood 10K & 5K

A limited number of places for this new event in August 2021.

Entries have opened for the Wildwood 10K & 5K and with a limited number of places, is likely to sell out well in advance of its August 2021 debut. This new race from Gator Events will be held on a flat course along the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal and runners can expect entertainment, live results TV’s, stalls and all the other accoutrements as per normal. 

The event takes place on the 29 August 2021 and will be a live race, the kind we all remember from the good old days before COVID. When we turned up, toed the line with others and pushed ourselves for a PB or were happy to get around before celebrating together with post-race drink and food. Those happy days will return...

There is a choice of 10K and 5K, both of which begin at the same time from Stafford Boat Club but continue in opposite directions along the canal. The 10K heads towards Baswich then circles back towards Wildwood whereas the 5K goes toward Acton Trussel, does a loop around the village then makes its way back. 

Whichever distance they choose, the runners will follow a flat route which is good hunting ground for a PB and receive a bespoke medal for their efforts. And be able to stay and watch their club mates or friends finish, giving them a cheer or two as they cross the line then check the results.
