Summer Series 2020

This year's Summer Series will be ... different!

As always, 3 events, 4 teams, one debatable handicapping system that gives everyone a chance to win and an opportunity for a bit of fun! There will be prizes for individuals and team winners. To qualify for a team prize, you must complete 2 or more events.

The 4 teams are made up according to your birthday
Earth = Jan 1 to March 31
Wind = April 1 to June 30
Fire = July 1 to Sept 30
Air = Oct 1 to Dec 31

Event 1, to be completed by the 13th June is the Dewsbury parkrun course.

Event 2, to be completed between 14th June and 4th July is the Leggers Loop. Starting and finishing at the Leggers Inn.

Event 3, to be completed between 5th July and 25th July is the Flat Cap race route. Starting on the bridge and finishing at the Leggers Inn.

Results will be published as soon as possible after the end of each event.

All events are to be completed according to Government restrictions and England Athletics advice in place at the time of your run, and anyone not abiding by these rules will be disqualified.

In addition, and to prevent any possible mass gatherings, please do NOT complete the Dewsbury parkrun on a Saturday morning around 9am. That will again lead to disqualification.

With a 3 week window available to complete each event, everyone should be able to find a day and time that is suitable for themselves. Please, as always, be mindful of other people using public spaces, paths etc. . There is nothing to stop anyone running the course several times and submitting their fastest time should they wish.

Evidence of your run , eg screenshot of strava or such like, to be submitted by email to

The Summer Series is always a bit of fun, please bear this in mind when running the events and take a safety first approach and enjoy it!
