Results  - 2023 Race

The 38th running of the Ingatestone 5 took place on Sunday 17th September 2023.   This year the weather conditions were dry with a cold wind. Numbers were slightly up on 2022.. The race went smoothly with 154 runners taking part.

To improve the race, it had been agreed that the route would be reversed for 2023. As a result the route has been officially remeasured starting in Little Hyde Lane. The runners took the road up to Fryerning and on to Beggar Hill, and finishing down Fryerning Lane at the the Anglo-European School. The distance remains 5 miles.. 

On behalf of the organisers, we would like to thank the Anglo European School, all the run officials, judges, marshalls and recorders, St. John Ambulance, Ingatestobe Rotary Club and the many others we have failed to mention for their assistance with this year's event. It was truly a great team effort and we are indebted to the contributions and support from everyone involved.

Congratulations to all competitors who completed the course and to Martin Clarke of Ilford AC and his team of timekeepers for administering the results for another successful event

On behalf of the Ingatestone Boys & Girls Club, I thank you for your support and hope you enjoyed the race
