First Saturday of the Month - Your local FREE timed 5km race
Is the Santa Canta (click here) on Saturday 2nd December 2023
If you are new to FSOTM, then please pre-register here before the event, we will allocate you a number (barcode) on Friday afternoon and you can print out (see below) or pick up on Saturday morning.
Here's a list of already registered people, please find yourself on the list, take a note of the page number and print only that page (it is a big file, you don't want to print it all!)
Please read the runbritain covid code of conduct before the event and above all, please don't attend our event if you have any covid symptoms.
Please turn up ready to run at the start at 8:50. It is a 5 minute walk from the car park to the start.
Recording your finish time:
When you register, you will be issued with a barcode which we will scan it when you finish (it isn't the same as a parkrun barcode). If you don't have a barcode with you on the day, take a finish token (and try to remember what finish number you are), take a note of your finish time (there is a finish clock) and after the event, let us know and we will add you into the results.
