Shoe Clinic Asics 5K Series


The Shoe Clinic Asics 5K Series is one of the most popular and longest established athletics events in Christchurch. It is run over three laps of a 1.6km (approx.) course in Hagley Park North with five races held on Tuesday evenings in January and February each summer. Each evening there are races for Athletics New Zealand registered athletes, for recreational runners and walkers and for children 14 years and under. With the support of our sponsors there is a great range of spot prizes each evening and valuable Series performance prizes for runners in the registered races.

The start times each evening for the races are:

  • Children 5:30pm
  • Registered Runners 5:45pm
  • Fun Run/Walk 6:15pm

However it would be greatly appreciated if entrants could download a copy of the appropriate entry form for the Fun Run/Walk or Registered Runners, complete it and bring it with them to the entry tent each evening. This will help us speed up the processing of a lot of entries. Competitors must complete an entry form for each evening.

Hagley Park North is in the centre of the city, making access very easy and the entry fee is purposefully kept low to encourage people and families to compete in all five runs. The Shoe Clinic Asics 5K Series is a great opportunity to help keep in trim shape over the summer holidays and to see some of Christchurch’s best runners in action in the registered races.
