Welford 10k & Fun Runs
Sunday 7th May
UKAthletics Multi Terrain Licence Number 2017-26529
This is our 4th 10k and Fun Run event. With the kind permission of Mr & Mrs Puxley we are once again using part of their private and beautiful Welford Estate. The 2.5k and 10k start and finish at the same point, so is ideal for runners and spectators alike. With a big grass bank used as a viewing platform which over looks the race start/finish point, helping us cheer the runners on. We have a road closure so the route is vehicle free (except for emergency vehicles) and marshalled appropriately. Registration is based in one of the barns near the start. There are toilets, unsecured bag drop area and tasty hot & cold food and drinks. Free nearby parking. Thanks to our main sponsors Moss Vehicle Maintenance who help cover our set up costs for the event and who will be running in the 10k.
The day starts with the childrens 500m run for Reception to Yr 4 children.
Then the 2.5k open to 9 year olds to 99!
With the final run being the 10k for 16 year olds and above.
