Athletics NorthEAST presents the FLAT OUT 5k

March 20, 2011

Shake the winter cobwebs from your legs with a new and exciting five-kilometre road race!

The Flat Out 5k is the flattest and fastest 5k running race route in St. John’s.

The Flat Out 5k is scheduled for Sunday April 10, 2011 at 8 AM at Clovelly Golf Club in the beautiful north east end of St. John’s. The race includes chip timing, age group medals, post-race reception at Clovelly Golf Club, and a fast and safe new course.
This zippy 5k route will jumpstart your 2011 road race season – while raising funds for the Athletics NorthEAST – Memorial University Cross-Country Running Scholarship fund. All proceeds beyond minimal expenses will be contributed to the fund. Runners are encouraged to make their own donations to the fund as well. Charitable receipts will be issued.

The Athletics NorthEAST – Memorial University Cross-Country Running Scholarship is an annual award that will help Memorial University runners, both male and female, in their efforts to maximize their running potential.

The Flat Out 5k and the Athletics NorthEAST – Memorial University Cross-Country Scholarship are the creations of the Athletics NorthEAST Running Club (ANE). The club was formed in 2004 to focus training efforts of members for running events ranging from 5k road races to marathons. ANE now has more than 150 active members, including some of the top male and female runners in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Online registration for the Flat Out 5k is available now at   The entry fee is $25. Runners of all ages and abilities are welcome.
