The Severn Loop 5km race which was postponed due to flooding on 27th December 2012 has now been rearranged for Sunday 17th February 2013. All numbers issued to runners who pre-entered for the December race are valid for the new event. A new entry form for those who have not yet entered and wish to run on 17th February may be obtained by clicking the photograph above. 



Unfortunately, a further 24 hours of rain have not only left large parts of the Severn Loop race course under 2ft of water but the registration room at the Boathouse pub is also flooded. With further rain forecast and river levels not set to peak until tomorrow, we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone the Severn Loop race until a fresh date can be found in February 2013. Thank you very much for your patience and continued support, the new date will be published on this site as soon as possible.
