Carnival 5k Run

After the success of our first 5km run in 2019 we are very excited to be working with Results Base again for the 5km run ahead of our parade on Saturday 2nd July.

A fast and flat 5k road race through the historic market town of Newport Pagnell. On closed roads in front of thousands, you’ll be running ahead of the annual town Carnival Parade. The race finishes on the carnival meadow in the show arena where a day of entertainment and fun awaits you.

This year there are three different runs, one to suit all abilities:

  1. The ‘Serious’ 5k
  2. Family Fun 5k
  3. Family 1k Fun Run

For more details and to enter the run please go to: Carnival 5km 2022

Parking

We would advise runners to walk to the start or get dropped off if possible to reduce traffic in the start area. For anyone coming from outside of town there will be ample parking a few minutes from the start line in Tongwell (details will be confirmed in your pre-race email). There is limited parking at the finish on Riverside Meadow via Wellend Drive. Please do not park in the roads surrounding the meadow. Once you’ve enjoyed all the offerings of the Carnival event, its an easy 3k walk or jog back to the start and your vehicle.

Bag drop

A secure bag drop is available, although all items are left are your risk. Bags will be taken to the finish for collection on the meadow. You must show your race number to collect your belongings.
