2016 RACE: Sunday March 20th at 10:00am

Welcome to the 2016 ALDI Ashby 20

Building on over a quarter of a century of success, our philosophy is to provide a value for money, quality race organised by runners, for runners. We believe we are THE premier pre-London/Spring Marathon training race, backed up by our BARR gold standard rating and consistently high rating in Runner’s World. Our aim remains simply to give you the best possible event we can.

Last year we introduced road closures around the route on the runners side of the road for your safety. This was a great success and much-appreciated by runners so it is now a permanent feature. This year we are changing the entry system and are using SiEntries. Many events use SiEntries, so you might well be registered with them already. If not, registering/entering through them is easy and means you can amend your entry, and even swap yourself to a team-mate or friend if you cannot make the race. This is another step towards ensuring that runners DON’T run on somebody else’s number!

These continual improvements to the race inevitably cost money, so we have to increase the entry fee for 2016. We believe the race still delivers incredible value for money, with a traffic-free safe route, top quality facilities and organisation, great drinks stations, and the legendary Ashby 20 hoodie and goody bag!

The ALDI Ashby 20 race team thank you for your support and we sincerely hope you achieve your race goals, whether you are aiming for a Spring marathon or have other aspirations in the running and racing world.
