Runners at Carlisle Castle

Capture The Castle

The first of a four-race 5K series starts this month in Carlisle

If you’ve been missing a regular 5K fix, live in the Carlisle area and often find yourself looking for something to do on ‘hump day’ then the latest offering from race organisers, Sport In Action could be for you. 

Wednesday, 9 June will see the launch of the Castle 5K Series - four races taking place on Wednesday evenings in the months June through to September. The remaining three events will take place on 7 July, 11 August and 8 September.   

Known for quality, challenging and above all value for money events across the north of England, Sport In Action, is excited to be bringing this new event to the people of Cumbria and hope that it will do something to fill the missing gap in shorter distance events on offer at the moment. 

Starting close to the city’s Sheepmount Stadium, the course is flat and fast - a mixture of park paths, pavements and quiet roads. Once runners have made their way around the route they will be rewarded with a stadium finish and medal. There will also be prizes for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd male and female finishers.
