A Spotlight on SportsShoes Podium Events

WHAT ARE SPORTSSHOES PODIUM EVENTS?

SportsShoes Podium Events are a series of unique and exciting races, designed to support and showcase the very best athletic talent in the UK.

All Podium events are graded, creating explosive races with similar standard competition and providing the best possible chance of achieving a personal best.

Racing for us is not about making profit so we make Podium Events affordable to enter. We will always give as much as possible back to the athletes in prizes.

Elite athletes, international superstars and even Olympians compete in our races. The aim is simple; organise the fastest courses, for the fastest athletes to run the fastest times possible.

We're excited for another year of racing action and hope you are too. Fancy a taste of the action? Then check out what's happened so far and what's coming up next for 2023!

PUL5K: PODIUM UNDER THE LIGHTS AT BATTERSEA

The PUL5K race is a joint collaboration between Friday Night Under the Lights 5K and SportsShoes Podium 5K held in Battersea Park in South West London. This annual race brings together a collection of the UK's finest athletes and always delivers super-fast times. This year was no exception.

In the women's race, Olympian Revee Walcott-Nolan of Luton AC took the win in a new PB of 15:48, trimming two seconds off her previous best achieved in the Podium 5K at Barrowford in April 2021.

She managed to hold off fellow GB International Calli Thackery of Hallamshire Harriers (15:56 SB) and 2022 British 10,000m champion Georgie Grgec of Herne Hill Harriers (16:06 SB). The £1000 first prize sponsored by adidas and £500 record bonus was personally donated by joint Race Directors, Ben Noad and Keith Scofield.
