EY 5k Road Race
The opening event of the Easter Festival is a flat, fast, inland 5k finishing on the Footes Lane track in front of the home straight stand, which has proved to generate quick times in previous years.
Race start is 10:00
On the day registration takes place in the Garenne Stand from 08:300 and finishes at 09:00. Late entry fees apply.

There is room for spectators to watch the start in Footes Lane itself, but only in areas set off of the road. At the finish spectators can watch from the stand seating area or outside of the barriers around the track.

Access to the seating in the Stand is free to spectators.
Changing is available under the Garenne Stand. Post-race refreshments will be available in the Club Room, Garenne Stand.
