3K RACES - REPORTS ON PAST EVENTS

Overview

Our Skylarks 3K Races have been organised by the Pitsea Running Club on Wednesday evenings twice a year, in April and July, from July 2010 to July 2019. Unfortunately, both the events in both 2020 and 2021 fell victims to the Pandemic, and by 2022 Pitsea Running Club was unable to lead the organistion of the events. At the time of writing, an alternative partner club is being sought such that these races can be rekindled.

SKYLARKS 3k RACE, WEDNESDAY 15th JULY 2015

Our July Race, held on Wednesday 15 July 2015, was once again very popular. These races through our delightful Country Park are organised at the Park by members of the Pitsea Running Club. All proceeds after expenses go towards the further development of the Park. Many - but by no means all - of the entrants come from local Running Clubs / Groups, but we also see a significant number of 'unattached' runners, and this time we also had five power walkers.

The full results can be viewed here, and a photo story can be viewed here. A report on the race is available in issue number 46 of our Skylarks Newsletter. Including the five walkers, there were 80 entries, which is three more than the previous record number.

SKYLARKS 3k RACE, April 22nd 2015

After two days of sunshine, Wednesday was cloudy all day, but at 6.30 the sun suddenly came out in time for The Friends' 3 kilometre race that evening. As the helpers arrived to set up the event, the first keen competitors came to register, and from then up to the scheduled start time of 7.30 p.m. the pavilion was bustling with runners.

The detailed results can be viewed here., and a photo story can be viewed here, and a report on the race is available in issue number 45 of our Skylarks Newsletter. .
