Goring 10k route

Set in beautiful Oxfordshire, this 10k race begins outside Storton Lodge, the local Scout Centre, and from the start climbs steadily through quiet country lanes. Coined as one of the most enjoyable 10k races in the UK and organised entirely by the Goring Primary School PTA, runners will enjoy pacing alongside the River Thames, with views of the beautiful English countryside at the top of the highest point of the course at 95m. All the proceeds from the race will benefit the students of Goring Primary School, with the hope to build the students a new library.

The course will be one lap of the route, and runners can look forward to refreshments and cheering spectators as they cross the finish line at Bourdillion Field.

    A great local race supporting the School at Sonning. It's worth arriving in good time as parking is a 10 mins walk from the race start. There was good organisation, outstanding flapjack at the end, and a superb rollercoaster of a course which starts uphill for the first kilometre and followed by a brilliant downhill stretch. Most of the race in on road, a little on grass and footpaths. The final Km is downhill, excellent for the strong finish, and that flapjack :)
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    A fantastic hilly 10k in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. I would definitely recommend!! Shame about the weather this year but that just added to the challenge...
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Would have been good to avoid the sloppy grass section, but the main killer was the wind, which we can hardly blame the organisers for! Overall, a very good event and the flapjacks at the end truly outstanding
