The 10k race starts and finishes from just outside the Banks Sports Club. Runners will speed around this flat rural course, in one single lap.
The course record of 30:04 was set by Ross Skelton in 2019 and there is certainly an opportunity for more quick times.
The route will be well marshalled throughout and clearly distance marked.
The race is a charity event generously sponsored by EDF, to raise money for their 2021 charity - Prostate Cancer UK.

Did the 10k in 2021
Poorly signposted, limited parking, two emails received both quoting different postcodes (neither correct) told to walk to start line across overgrown path with nettles. No water station where told there would be. Finish line narrow and other runners walking back the other way through it.

Did the 10k in 2019
Enjoyed the course as nice and flat and local to me very disappointed that there was only one drink station should’ve been more as the weather was very hot 🥵 and also running out of medals really wasn’t good either but apart from that it was a good course for a great charity
