Minimum Age 15 Years. Race start 19:30, with gun to chip timing. Please allow time for parking and collecting your race number.
Teams – there is no discount for team entries and there is no need to formally enter as a team. Instead, the results will be based on runners representing the same running club. The first four men or three women, from a particular club, to cross the line will be picked out and awarded the respective prizes.
Please do not wear headphones when running. In line with UKA rule 240 supp.5 we are banning the wearing of listening devices as the race is being run on a single carriageway road not closed to other road users.
The accurately measured course is on quiet undulating country lanes on the outskirts of Thornbury where you will be well looked after by Thornbury Running Club’s friendly and encouraging marshals.
A relaxed, hassle-free, but – for those who want it – very competitive road race over the ever-popular 10k distance with chip timing.
There will be substantial cash prizes for breaking the course record as well as team prizes.
Plenty of help and encouragement too for those trying the distance for the first time and no cut-off time.
