The Bexhill 5k series was founded alongside Bexhill Runners in 2001 by father and son Lee & Paul Holdaway. With an ethos to bring quality coaching to all abilities and races organised by athletes to the town, at a time when the sport of running had little presence in Bexhill. The 5km series aimed to provide a midweek, friendly, fast and professional race for beginners and serious athletes to assist every runners progression in their running.

Among many changes within the sport and local clubs over the years the passion to provide these races is still going strong, and now the 5k series is set up on behalf of the local Charity ‘Raising Money for Good Causes ‘. Lee Holdaway founded this new charity in 2015 to keep giving back to the sport and local community, read more about the work of RMFGC Charity Here

Due to the support of volunteers, UKSportsTiming proving FREE chip timing service and we, TL Sports, provide FREE race management and organisation for the race series. 100% of the entry fee after race costs such as medals, race numbers, council permits and medical cover goes to the Charity.
