“There is something for everyone,” says race director Georgie Starkie. “The 5K is open to all aged 11 and upwards; The 10K is open to athletes aged 16 and over;  The Half Marathon is open to athletes aged 17 and above; and we are also planning a 1K Junior Event for the Under 11s.

“We welcome entries from athletes of ANY ability and we are an equal opportunities event. If you would like to enter the race but have any special requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact the race director to discuss how we can accommodate you:


“We are still looking for marshals to help the event run smoothly and make everyone feel really pleased that they have taken part! We would love to hear from you if you are able to help – marshals are required to manage road closures and to direct and support the runners both out on the course and in the start/finish area. If you are able to offer help, please email:
