WILSON Browne Solicitors are thrilled to sponsor the Northamptonshire 5K Race Series for the second year running. Working in partnership with Northamptonshire Sport, the series has become firmly embedded in the county's annual running calendar. With hundreds of runners taking part last year, including club runners, jogging groups, those who are completely new to running, and even a few walkers, the 5K Race Series offers something for everyone.
The 2020 Series are multi-terrain courses taking in some of Northamptonshire's beautiful parklands and woodlands, with two new venues this year. Participants can enter as an individual or as a team, with a Northants 5K Race Series medal for all finishers. Runners entering the Whole Race Series package will get a free Race Series T-shirt.
Taking full advantage of the beautiful parklands and woodlands in the county, five challenging multi-terrain races are scheduled starting at Delapre Abbey, moving onto Salcey Forest, Boughton House, Sywell Country Park and the final race at Brixworth Country Park. There will also be two children's races this year, at Boughton House and Brixworth.
Kevin Rogers, Chairman of Wilson Browne said: "Wilson Browne Solicitors has a long history of supporting charities and organisations so we're delighted to sponsor the Race Series yet again. As a firm we offer a great work/life balance for our own employees, many of whom are runners and joggers. This sponsorship allows us to help inspire others in our local community to go out in 2020 and enjoy our wonderful local Northamptonshire parks and woodlands that we can often overlook."
Chris Holmes, Director at Northamptonshire Sport said: "It's terrific that we have the chance to build further on the successful partnership we've had with Wilson Browne Solicitors on the 5K Race Series so far. Wilson Browne take the health and wellbeing of their workforce very seriously and set a great example to us all. We're very grateful for their support. We're also particularly excited to be introducing a couple of fantastic new venues to the 5k Race Series in 2020, with Boughton House and Sywell Country Park joining the roster for the first time. Whilst we welcome all runners, we're principally focused on drawing in people just starting out, or reacquainting themselves with running and fitness. Being allowed to use amazing venues in beautiful settings add the icing to the cake!"
