The Risknowlogy Pirton Boxing Day Run 2016

We hope you enjoy your run. Thanks for supporting Pirton’s Sports & Social Club.

This year’s event is just like last year. No numbers, just timing chips – the exception being U18s in the main race, they need to run in a number so that we can identify that they get a medal and don’t get a bottle of beer. With the chips, make sure you get the right one. Be especially careful if you pick up more than one at registration (maybe you entered as a family) – make sure that Mummy, Daddy and Kids get the right chips.

The timing chips are strapped on your ankle and we record your time electronically as you cross the blue finish carpet. We’ve have old style pre-race excuses – little slips of paper on which you can write your witty and original excuse. “I won’t do very well today because ……”.

Online Entry Form

You can enter online via Entry Form and List of Entrants.

Venue and travel:

Car Parking:

If you intend to bring a car, you must book a car parking place. You can select either “A” parking at rec. or “B” car parking in other car parks around the village. “B” parking as at most 600m from the rec. When entries close we will email you a sticker that you should print off and display in your windscreen as you approach the village – follow the signs and the directions of the marshals and you will be guided to the correct car park.

Start Times:

  • 0930 – Car Parks, Registration and Help Desks open. They close at 1045.
  • 1025 – Early Runners 2.5m (short course)
  • 1035 – Under 13s 1km
  • 1050 – Walkers 2.5m (short course in reverse)
  • 1115 – Main Race 3.2m
  • 1125 – Under 7s 600m
  • 1200 – Presentation (we will do this on time too and we hope you’ll stay for it. If you can’t get round the main race in under 45 minutes, you might like to switch to the Walkers class – then you can definitely be back in time for the presentation).

Maps of Courses:


There are no prizes for being any good at running. We do award a prize for the best (most witty and original) pre-race excuse. Excuses must be entered online. We will email you the link with your final details
