About Us

Race Day: Sunday 23rd June 2019

More for the local community
2019 will be our tenth year and we want to do more for our local community. To achieve this we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to make our event run smoothly and be bigger and better than ever!

Do you need Funding?
Does your local group, club, charity or event need funding? Why not complete our Funding Request Form, our team are keen to support the local community. Organisations we are supporting this year and those we have supported in previous years.

We are also looking for sponsorship, so why not join our other local businesses and make a difference. Contact us for more information.

Three races
There will be three races available for you to enter, either the less arduous 1.5Km race, fun for all the family or the more ambitious 10Km and 5Km races* (we’re closing the roads for your added safety) for the more seasoned runners. Proceeds will be donated to local charities.

UKA Full Races licence No: 2019-37700

*The 10Km and 5Km Races are approved affiliated courses with measured, closed roads and level 2 medical cover. Minimum age for the 10Km is 15 years old and 5Km is 11 years old on the day of the race.

Road Closure Notice for 2019 has been approved: Road Closure Notice – 2019

Medical Cover
The welfare and health of our runners is paramount! We have level two first aid with Immediate Care Medical, which includes an ambulance, two cyclists on the route and medical centre. We also have two GPs on our committee who will be in attendance.

If a runner has any medical issues, we suggest that they wear a wristband documenting any conditions. This is much quicker to see than trying to find an entry form and then relay any issues back to the medical team who are trained to look for medical wristbands. The runners bibs also have medical details on the reverse which all runners are asked to fill in at registration.
