Entries are flooding in for Coventry Godiva's ever popular New Year 5 miles road race and early indications are that there could be a record field.
This year's race will take place on Sunday 29th December 2013 at 11am, over the usual fast, flat paths and roads of Warwick University, a course that is popular because of its simplicity and speed.
"In the last three years of the race we've had very respectable fields and race times," claimed Race Director Martin Slevin. "Last year the men's winning time was just outside 25 mins and the two years prior to that the race was won in 24.49 and 24.24. The women's times were equally impressive, with last years winner running sub 28 minutes. So, we know the course is good, the race is well organised and New Year is a great time to get out and blow away the post Christmas cobwebs."
The race will be sponsored by Medwell Hyde Property Solutions and Coventry Runner and entry is via entry form or online. Details for both at http://www.coventry-godiva-harriers.org.uk
