From the organizer

Organizer's website

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.

The 5K race is new for this year, offering newer and younger runners the chance to take part in a closed road race.

There will also be a famous mascot race, where characters will take each other on to entertain the watching crowds.

    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.
