Dinton Pastures 5km/10km Summer Series 2021

THE event of the summer!

Remember those lovely summer evenings - they will soon be back with us and so with the Dinton Summer Series......YEAH!

A friendly well-established event welcoming runners of ALL abilities.

The course is a lovely off-road, traffic-free route around Dinton Pastures Country Park, near Reading, to clock up 5km, or go round twice for 10km. Either way, it’s pancake flat and if you enter more than one race you’ve a great chance of seeing that PB come down month by month!

The more races you enter the cheaper (& more fun!) it becomes!

It really is such a great race, great location, easy parking, well organised, friendly, flat, fast and fun! My weekends are for my children so snap up any opportunity to run in the summer evenings, but the Dinton Summer Series is my favourite. WELL DONE!
