This fantastic running event enjoys it's 5th year at a superb modern location after DUATHLON ROCKINGHAM. Free parking coupled with race HQ set in the pit garages and the race finish line in the pit lane this is going to be a classic event.

We know this is a FAST course. The Rockingham10 mile course record was created in November 2014 at a lightning speed of 52:29!! Will you take the chequered flag and set the course record or is it about completing a new milestone?
NAA County 10 mile Championship race. To be part of this race, enter online as normal. Then on the day of the race, once you have collected your number/timing chip, visit the NAA desk to register your intent to compete in the Championship.

HEADPHONES. Rockingham 10 is a closed circuit (road) race. Although we are on tarmac we have no traffic on the course. Therefore headphones are allowed, but we do advise that because you are on a course over 2 or 3 laps you do need to hear marshals instructions, so we do discourage the wearing of headphones. To confirm we will not be handing out any disqualifications for any person who does wear headphones.
CHILDREN. In this race the 5k runners share the racing circuit with 10k & 10mile runners. For safety reasons we have made the decision to limit the age of runners on the 5k to 8yrs and over.

Run at Stanwick Lakes events are organised by Rockingham Forest Trust, the same organisation that manages the 750 acre Stanwick Lakes nature reserve. Headed up by our resident runner Becky Gill the events have started to take shape with our end goal of making the events a great experience for all types of runners all year around.

Rockingham Forest Trust is a self sustaining, environmental charity. All the income made by the Trust is reinvested back into the site to ensure that the high quality is maintained for all visitors to enjoy.

The money raised through the running events allows the Trust to repair and maintain the 7 miles of gravel paths, add new exciting adventure play kit for the children and also helps the Ranger team continue their fantastic conservation work that keeps the site as one of the gems of Northamptonshire with its SSSI (site of special scientific interest), SPA (special protected area) and RAMSAR (important internationally recognised wetland site) status.
