Festive Flash Five 2022

Starts: 10:00am

Date: 27th November 2022

The race is held in November. It is the perfect way to start the Festive season and we provide some treats to help you get in the Christmas mood.

Festive Flash Five will take place at Pennington Flash Country Park.  The scenic route covers trails, canal paths and short stretches of tarmac. It will be completely off public roads.  

The park address is St Helen’s Road, Leigh, WN7 3PA. Pennington Flash is a great countryside location, but is still easily accessible by road and there will be ample parking available.

The course is suitable for all runners, whether you are an experienced runner or a beginner. The course may be muddy or slippy due to the time of the year, so trail or hybrid shoes are recommended. However, you would be able to complete the course in normal running shoes.


The cost of the race is £21 for non-affiliated runners and £19 for UKA affiliated runners.


.Entries will be open on Monday 21st March 2022 and you will be able to enter via this link.

DOUBLE ENTRIES: We have a limited number of "Flashing Double" bundles available. You can enter both Flash in the Park and Festive Flash Five for £37 (£33 for UKA affiliated members) while stocks last. You can take advantage of this offer here.

The provisional route can be found here. Please note this is subject to change on or before the event for safety reasons.

There will be medals and our legendary Christmas goody bags for all finishers. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st three men and the 1st three women.

We need volunteers to ensure Festive Flash Five runs smoothly. Volunteer roles include marshalling, registration and runner welfare and is a great way to get involved without running. Please get in touch with us if you can help. Full training will be provided.
