Profile:

The seventh Silsoe Stride is set within the magnificent grounds of Wrest Park and neighbouring farmland. This provides for a very scenic race, ideal for runners of all abilities including those new to running, with a gently undulating route. The Stride is organised by members of the village and all profits are shared to beneficiaries within the village including the School PTA and Pre-School, maintenance of the Village Hall and Millenium Green and village sports clubs.

For 2019 we have introduced early discounts for the Senior entrants:

5k   £10.00 before 30 April; £12.00 from 1st May

10k  £20.00 before 30 April; £25.00 from 1st May

We are limited to 100 children and 400 senior runners.

The 5k is open to walkers and Nordic walkers, but please note that to proceed with the childrens races the senior course will close at 11:00am.
