NFR LGBT5k Festival of Running 2019 Join us on the evening of the 19th July with a running event for everyone!
On your marks…
We return on the evening of Friday 19th July on Newcastle Town Moor in conjunction with Northern Pride.
Not one, two but three races: our infamous LGBT5k £17/£15, 3-person relay £30 per team, and a children’s race £5.
All participants get a medal and the best goody bag in the north east!
Entries open 10am on 30th March via StuWeb.co.uk – why not register with the site now so you’re ready to go as soon as entries go live. Last year we sold out in a day, and despite even more spaces this year we still expect to sell out fast.
It’s more fun running together – good cause cash-back!
We will be operating our good cause cash-back scheme again this year. We love being able to give back to other clubs, parkruns, and charities via our race. On the entry system there will be a field to enter if you are supporting a particular cause, and for every 16 entries supporting that cause we will donate £50.
Supporting Rainbow Home
This year Newcastle Frontrunners support Rainbow Home with a £1 donation made for every entry to the LGBT5k. Rainbow Home are a group working lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans asylum seekers in Newcastle and the north east. They provide a support in a safe space, with integration, friendship, confidence, to help enable them to feel at home. Find out more about their work via Mesmac.
As a reminder, the date is the evening of Friday 19th July 2019. The event will again coincide with Newcastle Pride weekend, will take place on Newcastle’s Town Moor, and all events occur on the same evening.
Introduced last year the children’s 2k and the 3-person relay where each person runs approx. 1 mile, were a great success. If you can’t manage a full 5k, are returning from injury, you have a couple of friends you’d love to run with as a team, or fancy a bit of friendly competition with other clubs, the relay is the ideal event for you. You can run the relay as well as the 5k race.
Approximate timings are:
5.45pm: Children’s 2k (age 5-15)
6.30pm: 3×1-mile relay
7.15pm: The traditional LGBT5k
