River Pursuit 1 - 12k

Date / Time
Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Length 7.46 miles (12.0 km)

We are thrilled to announce the return for the 2nd year, the highly popular River Pursuit 6/12k series for 2018. The first of the two events will be held on the morning of Sunday 20th May. (The second on Saturday 25th August, 2018)

This event will also include a 1k (for all ages and abilities) and our very own 50m (free for 5 and unders only)

This event will be Canicross friendly – If we receive a sufficient amount of dog runners we will have a separate canicross wave.

Course description: Flat and will be suitable for all standards of runner.

Location: Stothert & Pitt RFC, Bristol Road, Corston, Bath, BA2 9DJ 

Race times: 

50m dash (Under 5’s only) – 9:40am
1k (all ages and abilities) – 9.45am
6k - 10:00am
12k - 10:05am 

Age limits: 

6k - Minimum age: 12 years, when accompanied by a responsible adult 

12k - Minimum age: 17 years old


12k - £18 Unaffiliated/£16 Affiliated

6k - £16 Unaffiliated/£14 Affiliated

1k - £7 (Parents/Guardians can support for free, no need to register yourselves unless you would like a medal too of course!)

50m – 5’s & under only – Free! (Limited spaces available)

***Due to the ever-growing popularity of the 1k and 50m races which sell out at every event, we have decided to introduce a fair rule policy. 

Therefore, children can enter either the 1k or 50m dash BUT not enter both at the same event.

We wish as many little ones as possible to gain a race experience and therefore receive a medal at the end of it and we think the above is fair to all.***

Registration will open at 9:00am and will be held inside the Stothert & Pitt Rugby Club on the main Bristol to Bath A4 (near The Globe pub at Newton St Loe) which can easily be accessed by bike, car and bus.

The 6k is a single loop, the 12k a two loop course. It is an amazingly diverse multi terrain route which will be held on a mixture of roadside path, the trails alongside the stunning River Avon, the Bristol & Bath Railway Path and will also transverse through the open countryside. All this whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings of the Avon Valley.

The start and finish will be on the Rugby Club field.

Further information:

Parking and toilets: There is limited parking for 150 cars at the Rugby Club. So please, please do car share if possible or consider seeking alternative transport.

The Rugby Club boasts separate male and female changing facilities and will be open for bacon butties/soft drinks and tea and coffees throughout the event and the bar will be open for a post-race cider or two! So, don’t forget your pennies.

All 6/12k finishers will receive a bespoke medal. This can be combined into a super medal of 4 segment with the 2nd River Pursuit 6/12k on Saturday 25th August and both Run the River 7.5/15k events on Sunday 6th May and Saturday 3rd June (All from the same location)

All 1k finishers will also receive a goody bag.

All 50m finishers receive a little goody bag with a medal.

The 6k/12k races will be timed.

There will be 12k winner’s prizes for the following:

Overall male 1st, 2nd and 3rd
Overall female 1st, 2nd and 3rd
1st Senior male and female
1st male and female V40
1st male and female V50
1st male and female V60+
1st male and female U20

There will also be 6k trophies for the Overall male and female 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

There will be a suitably placed water station for runners and the finishers table will be laden with its usual fruit, cake and treats.

First Aid will be in attendance and the course will be fully marshalled.
