The Commonweal 5 Mile was etablished in 2012 and all money raised from the event supports The Commonweal School.


The scenic course has a sting in its tail...!  Starting (and finishing) on the school playing field, the route descends along paths from Old Town onto the Old Town Railway Path, to a flat middle section along by the Waitrose supermarket and the lakes and canal at Wichelstowe. The final section of the route involves a steady climb back up to Old Town.


Toilets, showers and changing facilities are available in the school's new gym. The PTA serves refreshments including bacon butties and a great assortment of delicious homemade cakes!


Entry is open to everyone over the age of 15, but due to the quality of the running surfaces along certain stretches of the route, the race is not ideally suited for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Race numbers must be collected from the race HQ at Commonweal School on the day.

Welcome to the Commonweal 5 Mile in Swindon
