About HU5k

HU5k is a 5k run for all ages and abilities starting and finishing at the centre of the village of Hawkesbury Upton. The course visits sections of the beautiful Cotswold Way, with stunning views of the glorious Gloucestershire countryside.

Everyone is welcome - whether you are new to running, want to improve your time or just fancy a brisk walk through some stunning countryside. All entry fees go towards funding needed resources at Hawkesbury Primary School.

Pre-registration is strongly advised due to the ever-increasing popularity of this event.

The Course

HU5k starts and ends within the cotswold village of Hawkesbury Upton. The route is gently undulating on roads and tracks which are either paved, earth-surfaced and with short sections on grass footpath. There will be full signage to make sure you stay on track, and plenty of marshals to cheer you on and keep you safe.

There's a full route tour at our course information page.
