Thank you to all those who have entered the race.  The limit of 750 has now been reached and the race is now Full.   We look forward to staging another well organised event - whether you are a first timer or an elite athlete.  Keep up to date via this web site or our 10k facebook page.  Best wishes.  RACE ORGANISERS

 

UPDATE - 26 SEPTEMBER 2018

 

There now are only 30 places left til we reach the limit of 750.  Please be advised there will strictly be no entries on the day.   If you know someone who intends to enter, please let them know soonest.

 

ENTRIES

 

Thanks to all those who have already entered the race. We are now about two thirds full. This is an incredible response for which we thank all our loyal supporters who come back year after year.  With only approx. 250 places remaining, and just two months to race day, please remind your fellow club runners and friends to sign up as soon as possible. It is a race organisers’ nightmare to have to turn away late-comers away once the race is full. This happens every year – so make sure it’s not YOU!

 

WINNERS TROPHY

 

We have introduced a perpetual trophy for the male and female winners. This trophy is kindly funded by our sponsor Ground Control. Each year the name of the male and female winner will be engraved on this prestigious trophy which will be displayed in the hall on race day.   We will be keeping the trophy, but the winners will get £50 each – and an extra £100 if they break the course record. All runners will be presented with a race souvenir and a mars bar at the finish line.

FREE PHOTOS !   A photographer will be present on the course and will endeavour to take a photograph of each runner as they pass.  These will be available for free download, via link on our web site, within 24 hours of the finish of the race.

 

 

BAG DROP.  We will be trialling a secure bag drop facility this year.  This will be on a first come, first served basis - only one bag accepted per runner.

 

 

LIVE STREAMING.  We will also be providing live streaming of the finish line to our Facebook page.  This is to be confirmed subject to technicalities.

 

 

RECYCLING.  We will be providing recycling bins for plastic water bottles at race headquarters and at the finish area.  Biodegradable cups will be used at the water station and compostable cups will be used for refreshments at race HQ.

 

 

TAKING YOUR COMMENTS ON BOARD - CHIP TO CHIP TIMING.

 

We do take your feedback seriously and have explored all possibilities to enable chip to chip timing.  Unfortunately, this is not possible for several reasons and therefore we will continue with gun to chip timing only.
