The Government may have delayed their Roadmap but the current rules allow us to hold this outdoor event. We will have a revised layout to allow for better spacing – we do have the area of over three football pitches to spread over. We do ask the entrants and families bring their own sanitizer and face masks, if possible please take a self test before you come.

The Silsoe Stride is set within the magnificent grounds of Wrest Park and neighbouring farmland. This provides for a very scenic 5K and 10K race, ideal for runners of all abilities including those new to running, with a gently undulating route where you can Run, Walk or Jog.  Within the 10K race there are a few hills.  Our fun, friendly atmosphere ensures everyone has a great time, with a popular Children’s Fun Run also on the day.

The Children’s races vary from 100m to 1000m and children are allocated to races after discussion with parents. All finisher receive a medal. First girl and first boy in each race will also receive a trophy.

The Stride is organised by volunteers and groups from the village and all profits are shared to beneficiaries within the village.  In 2019 we made a profit of just over £4,000. This has been shared between the Silsoe Village Hall, Silsoe Lower School PTA, Silsoe Pre-school, Silsoe Millennium Green Trust, Silsoe Cricket Club, Silsoe School Football Club and Silsoe Carpet Bowls Club.  All of these groups were involved in the planning, organising and running of the Stride. For 2021 they are joined by the newly formed Silsoe Scout Group.

We do propose to make a number of changes to help everyone follow the “Hands, Face, Space” approach. Details will be send to all entrants and will be posted here after the Government announcement on Monday 14th.

There is plenty of space for everyone on the Wrest Park playing field and we welcome family groups to spread out. Out team will wear suitable PPE and we welcome supporters to do the same when coming close to others. We currently plan to have a refreshments area.

If necessary, we will start the senior races in waves rather than en-mass and barriers should keep supporters away, but not too far, from the start / finish. Chip timing will support this.

There will be toilets spaced out with suitable control of access.
