Venue: EvenSplits York 5k (October)
Race Date: October 21st, 2022. Start time 19:00.
The 2022 5k championship was run as part the EvenSplits race at the University of York Sport Village Cycle Circuit on October 21st. Races here involve 4-and-a-bit laps of the perfectly flat outdoor cycle track. This makes for fast times and a great race for supporters to spectate at.
Anyone entered as a member of a YVAA-affiliated club was automatically entered into our championship, along with any individually affiliated runners. (See our membership page for a list of clubs and individuals affiliated for 2022.)
There were two start waves at this race, based on expected finish times, which were collected as part of the entry process. Overall category positions were based on the fastest times across both start waves.
There was no prize-giving on the night, so we’ll try to get trophies to our winners at future events. Given the torrential rain, it would have been unrealistic to expect many people to hang around after the race anyway.
We had some great times and some very tight races, the closest of which was in the M45 category where Justin Wilson took the title ahead of Paul Howard by just 6 tenths of a second. As ever, congratulations to all of our winners.
Thanks again to Martin Browne for welcoming us to his event.
