Polka Dot Races

Welcome to Polka Dot Races, we are pleased to have partnered up with Races4U to work together to bring to life races that offer that little something different.

As a team we are all passionate about running, as runners ourselves we understand the love and hate relationship we all have with running.

We take our passion for running, our need for fun, want for something different and desire to challenge ourselves attitude and inject it into planning all of our events.

Polka Dot Races host road events and virtual events offering something different to runners.

We believe in offering runners something that can challenge them and achieve things they may not have thought possible whilst having an element of fun too. We are with them every step of the way encouraging and being supportive by either there at the finish line of our road events or via our Facebook page.
