10 Jun 2023

Organiser's Description

The Gnosall Globetrotters welcome you to the 2023 Gnosall 10K, taking place on 10th June 2023 at 10.30am

  • The Gnosall Globetrotters are organising the 2023 Gnosall 10K and we look forward to welcoming you to Gnosall for our exciting, multi-terrain 10K ish (actually 11.2km) race.

 

  • SIGN UP before the end of April 2023 to pre-order the size of your finisher's technical t-shirt

 

  • Our friendly 10K race is open to runners of all abilities. All finishers receive a fantastic technical t-shirt and yummy goodies as their reward at the finish line. We also love randomly distributing our spot prizes to worthy runners of all abilities in an addition to the formal trophies for the first 3 men and ladies. To commemorate the tragic death of a young member of our community and former Gnosall 10K runner, Sam Myatt, we will also be awarding the ‘Sam Myatt Trophy’ to the fastest youngster (aged 20 or younger) on the day.

 

  • Starting and finishing at the Gnosall Family Sports Club (ST20 0EJ), the route incorporates the Shropshire Union Canal, local farmland, woodland area of Broadhill, the disused railway line and the ‘boardwalk’ through The Acres. The course is an undulating, multi-terrain 11.2K route through our beautiful surrounding countryside, arguably the most scenic race in Staffordshire. Check out the route

 

  • The Gnosall 10K has a UKA licence (2023-44413) and is professionally chip-timed by JC Race Solutions

 

  • Whilst waiting for the runners to return, spectators can enjoy refreshments at the Gnosall Family Sports Club and children can have fun in the play area. Local businesses will be providing refreshments in the form of hot sandwiches, cakes, cookies and tea and coffee. We also have a number of local business and sports providers displaying their wares in the start/finish line arena.

 

  • Treat yourself to a pre or post race massage from Apollo Sport Injury for a bargain £5, all proceeds being donated to a local cause.

 

  • Upon completion of the race, runners can enjoy a well-deserved pint at the Sports Club which remains open until the evening
