This is a timed 5k and 1500mts that takes place on the last Sunday of the month. Held on a course over what was once the most contaminated area in Europe. It is now a beautiful area to Run Jog Walk that is traffic free.


These monthly events are supported by North East Derbyshire District Council & Derby Runner. Due to COVID we have had to change the Race HQ and parking to the Avenue Country Park, Hornbeam Drive, Wingerworth S42 6GE. Please come ready to run, there are no toilet, changing facilities.


Please enter online with link below or email john@cannonevents.co.uk before event with name DOB etc. Children from 7 years of age can run 5k with an adult. Prices £4.00 for 16 years + £3.00 under 16 years. Enter on the day or online


After each 5k run the person with the most improved time, compared with recent Avenue 5k performances, will be presented with the Frazer Hipkiss Trophy which they will hold until the next race the following month. There will also be trophies presented for 3 male/female finishers who improve their time over recent performances.


Anyone completing 5 events during the year, 5k or 1500m, will receive a commemorative race t-shirt.
