08 Aug 18
Almost Athletes are again pleased to be hosting the Bugatti 10K, a very successful road race in the Gloucestershire AAA's series. Race HQ will again be at the Prescott Hill Climb. As we know most runners appreciate the option, chip timing is being supplied by Lush Race Timing. The marshals for the event are kindly provided by Cheltenham Harriers.
The route is a mixture of scenic quiet country roads and is an undulating course
• Chip timing
• Distance markers every km
• Beginner friendly racing.
• Bespoke medal for first 300 finishers, prizes for category winners, Mens & Ladies 1st, 2nd & 3rd, MV40, MV50, MV60, MV70, FV35, FV45, FV55, FV65 and Mens and Ladies team prize (first three home with club affiliation and wearing club vest). Please note any runner winning a 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize will not be eligible for an age category prize, ie they will not win 2 prizes.
Post race refreshments will be available, with burgers/hot dogs/veggie burgers being available to purchase in the Club House...with maybe a cheeky beer to wash them down! What better way to reward yourself after your strenuous efforts?!
