Fast 5K

Returning in Sunderland

Saturday 7th May 18:00

Northern Spire Bridge, Sunderland

EOTN are delighted to be hosting a FOURTH Fast 5K. We look forward to welcoming athletes to this fantastic racing opportunity. Athletes of all standards are welcome to enter the Sunderland 5K, an elite field of male and female athletes will be assembled at the front of the race. Further detail and previous results are available below. 

6pm Elite & Sunderland City 5K

Prize Fund (Awarded to fastest times regardless of race)

In addition all those running a PB will be given a discounted entry to any future Fast 5k events

Events of the North will return to the City of Sunderland on the 7th and 8th May 2022 to deliver four events in partnership with Sunderland City Council and Active Sunderland. As part of the 2022 event the Northern Spire 5K course has been redesigned meaning the course is flatter and faster than ever before!

In celebration of this new route, Events of the North are inviting a field of elite athletes to take part in the Fast5K, an event founded by Steve Cram in 2020. The Fast5K, which has been held on two previous occasions at the Three Sisters Circuit in Wigan, has seen British and International Olympic athletes such as Laura Weightman, Jessica Hall and Callum Hawkins all battle for victory.

The Fast5K will be incorporated into the Northern Spire 5K. A combined prize fund of £4,000 cash and Nike running kit will be up for grabs! The new 5K route provides runners and spectators with a fantastic opportunity to line up with some of the UK’s top athletes.
