5k - Bweeng our own race. Why..because its the most professional and best value for money 5k on circuit. Safety as priority one. Only 10euro entry and for that you get a true chip timed start and finish time and not just a gun to finish chip time, goodie bag, huge spread of food, 3000 euro in cash prizes plus spot prizes for runners down in the lower positions, DJ, Piper, Drone footage, car parking at HQ, PB course. There are other very good ones out there too. But i honestly think as many have commented on the day we set the bar foe others to follow. Biased of course but the facts back it up.
