Plymouth 10K & 5K routes



Plymouth 10K holds an undulating course, suitable for runners of all abilities. Starting in the city centre, you'll head out towards Marsh Mills along the embankment and back whilst taking advantage of closed roads and great scenery.


For the Plymouth 10k there is a cut off time of 90minutes. If you are still on the course you will either be moved to the pavement or instructed to leave the race. We have strict periods of road closures we have to adhere to.


A runner must retire immediately if ordered to do so by a medical officer of the race.

Plymouth 10K & 5K reviews (4)

4.6 out of 5 stars

  • Atmosphere
  • Did the 10K in 2019

    The race itself was great however we all had a 15 minute delay due to many runners receiving duplicate numbers by which time i had cooled down a lot. But the race itself fantastic and highly reccomend it.
  • Did the 5K in 2018

    A fun road race around the centre of Plymouth. Fairly cheap and combines adult & junior racing on a nice, easy course.
  • Did the event in 2018

    Good race, cold morning though!The course was all road, so no need for trail gear!
  • Did the event in 2018

    I volunteered to be a pacer and ran as the 60 minute pacer. The event was well organised and used the guikdhall as a central hub again. The route is reasonably flat for Plymouth. Very enjoyable.
