About the Thornbury 10k

The Thornbury 10k is a relaxed, and for those who want it, a very competitive road race over the ever-popular 10k distance with gun to chip timing.

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.

Minimum Age 18 Years. Registration will be from 18.30 with the Race starting at 19:30.

  • There will be 300 places available for 2022, but it is very likely the event will sell out quickly so we do not envisage entries on the day.
  • Chip to chip timing.
  • Prizes in all major categories.
  • The race will be run under ARC Rules (Permit applied for).
  • Race numbers with attached chips will be issued on the day.

Course Information

  • This is the  course map with parking places and the plot-a-route  version.
  • The roads are not closed to traffic so be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Please keep to the right hand side of the road (facing oncoming traffic) unless otherwise instructed by a marshal.
  • There will be plenty of marshals on the course followed by a sweeper vehicle, if you get into difficulty please contact your nearest marshal or wait for the car. As always, please take care of your fellow runners and offer assistance if you can.
  • If you retire from the race please make sure that race officials are aware, we don’t want to have to send out search parties!!
  •  The use of head phones is not permitted. You will need to able to receive instructions from race officials and listen out for traffic
  • We have a number of prizes as usual this year. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both the Men and the Ladies, plus age group prizes, so stick around for the prize giving at 9pm and enjoy maybe a drink in the bar.


This is a new course so a chance to set a course record!

The old course record for men is 30.59, set in 1991 by Maurice Cowman of Westbury Harriers, and the women’s old course record set by Marion Sutton of Westbury Harriers in 2002 is 36:00.


For those taking it a little easier, or trying the distance for the first time……

  • There is no cut-off time for the race (though we’d hope to get everyone through in an hour and a half or the bar will be shut!)
  • There will be at least half a dozen Thornbury Running Club members running (or occasionally walking!) with you to help and encourage you, and some pacemakers too.
