Our 5K Time Trial

Our 5k Club Time Trial takes place three times each year.

The first running normally takes place shortly after British Summer Time begins, with the second held in July and the final event held in early September. The third running takes the form of a handicap event, with staggered start times based on the results of the earlier two attempts.

All Striders are welcome to enter and you will receive an official time which you compare yourself against at subsequent time trials.


The course takes two very similar anti-clockwise laps around the Aspin Estate.

Starting from the road end of the bridle path below the Cricket Club, the first longer lap heads along the back of the Cricket club for an extra loop around back of the playpark before heading back onto Aspin Lane via Abbey Crags Way. This extra loop is only used on lap 1. The route thereafter is: Aspin Lane – Rievaulx Avenue – Grimbald Road – Snicket – Cemetery Path – King James Road – Aspin Lane before heading back past the Cricket club for a second, slightly shorter lap, this time straight down Aspin Lane, missing out the playpark loop. The course finishes outside the Cricket Club gates on lap 2.

A Strava Route is also available here.
