5K Event Instructions

Oct 12, 2017

It is not long until our 5K for Headway Thames Valley at Beale Park. If you are joining us on the day, here is everything you need to know.

5k (smallest)


Parking: Go straight through the main entrance to Beale Park and drive towards the carpark. Before reaching the carpark, there will be a field with an open gate on your left, please park in this field. We will have Headway Thames Valley balloons and a sign at the entrance. Once parked, you will see our tents in the adjacent field that we are using as our ‘Race Village’.


Itinerary: Meet us in the race village at 10:30am so you can register – this will be quick if you have signed up online. If you are paying to take part on the day, this is where you do it. A therapist from https://www.therapistsonthehighstreet.co.uk/ will be offering complimentary pre event massages before a professional personal trainer leads everyone in a warm up at 10:50am. The race starts at 11.00am – the beautiful scenery in the park will certainly be a nice distraction from any aches and pains in your legs.




Once you have completed the 5k make sure you collect your well-deserved medal and you’ll have a selection of complimentary food plus hot and cold drinks. If you are bringing any supporters with you on Sunday, they will be able to purchase refreshments. There will also be a bake sale with a prize for best bake – please feel free to try them all!


Beale Park are offering all race participants complimentary access to the park after the race and family and friends will be offered a discounted rate of £4 per person. This is a discount of £3 for an adult and £1.50 for a child, so you can really make a day of it!


The weather forecast looks promising for Sunday, so hopefully the sun will have his hat on – just don’t forget to wear your ‘hat for Headway’ too!
