About the event

Sri Chinmoy Races in Bristol take place on weekday evenings every Summer between early May and late July on the "Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile" in Eastville Park (map at bottom of this page).

We have two 2 mile races, a 5k and a 3 x 1 mile relay which is open to any team of three runners (and is loads of fun - the highlight of the series!). It is affectionately being called the Ice Cream Relay as every runner gets a free ice cream at the end of the race. The junior runners love this race!

The course is an accurately measured, undulating 1-mile pavement loop around the perimeter of the park. Shaded by trees for much of its length, the course is perfect for summer evening racing or speedwork.

The cost of each race is £5 for members of affiliated running clubs and £7 for all other runners. You can enter the 3-race series in advance for only £13 (affiliated) or £18 (unaffiliated). 

The relay race is £2 (affiliated) or £4 (unaffiliated) per runner.

Juniors are £2 (affiliated) or £4 (unaffiliated) for all races.

Entry is £1 extra on the day

Note that the race series is comprised of the 2 mile, 5km and 2 mile races. The relay race is a separate event.
