About the HU5k Run

The course

HU5k starts and ends within the cotswold village of Hawkesbury Upton. The route is gently undulating on roads and tracks which are paved or earth-surfaced, with short sections on grass footpath. There will be full signage to make sure you stay on track, and plenty of marshals to cheer you on and keep you safe.

There is a full route tour from HU5ky Bear, our race mascot, on our course information page.

Our community

HU5k is organised entirely by volunteers in the village of Hawkesbury Upton, in support of Hawkesbury Primary PTA. We’re grateful to everyone involved for bringing a true community spirit to this event. Thank you!

If you’d like to join our volunteer team for the next event, there are jobs for everyone on the day – so please get in contact here.
