The Lutterworth Charity 5 is a well-established run event that takes place on the outskirts of Lutterworth every summer. Proceeds from the event go to dementia related charities.
The race was first launched in 2013 by Alan Slater, a local runner from Lutterworth, to raise money for dementia charities after his father lost a three year battle with the illness. Race Harborough are delighted to be working with Alan to ensure the continued success of this Lutterworth run. .
There are a few important points to bear in mind. Due to licence restrictions, the minimum age of participants is 15. There is also a limit of 400 participants and these are allocated on a first come, first served basis. Sorry but for this event, dogs are not allowed to take part.
The course is set on country roads in the rural area of Ullesthorpe and Bitteswell and is a measured 5 miles with a few small undulations. It is a very fast course and it has helped many runners a PB over this distance. This event is recognised by UK Athletics (2015-12265)
