From Barrie Roberts: The Monty 5k Race which took place on Wednesday Evening 29th June,2016, was hosted by Leamington C&AC as part of the Warwickshire Road Race League. The Course was described as being `fast and flat.`
Due to heavy rain showers prior to the event,part of the Course was flooded, and there was an abundance of mud and puddles. There was quite a good `turn-out` (258 completed the distance) considering the weather, and the fact that one had to circumnavigate the rush hour traffic to get to the venue. The Course was multi-terrain ie. started and finished on a slippery/slimmy all weather track, had grass sections,uneven ground (which was marked), a couple of down-sloping ramps, 2x laps loop adjacent to River Leam and a sharp right hand turn under a bridge.
