St Aidan's Virtually Real 10K
#VIRTUALLYREAL

31 Jul 2020

Swillington, Leeds
Starts: 22:00
Distance: 10 Kilometres
Entry Fee: £10.00

Run the St Aidan's 10K course between 18-31 July

Whilst we cannot race the St Aidan's 10K in a completely real format this year, we are excited to announce that the 2020 St Aidan’s 10K will be virtually real! What does virtually real mean? Well, it’s real in that you are being invited to run the St Aidan’s 10K course and it’s virtual in that you are asked to run it at a time of your choosing between Saturday 18th and Friday 31st July. Like a real race, you will have a race number, but like a virtual run you will record your own time. Like a real race there will be a start line, finish line and marked course, but like a virtual run there won't be any marshals. You will get a medal when you finish and there will be prizes, but they will all be sent out after the event. Maybe it’s really virtual, but we like to think it’s virtually real. This popular 10K trail race is a perfect introduction to off-road running and an ideal race to test your speed. The race is a fast and flat(ish), trail race along public footpaths and bridleways in and around in the idyllic setting of St Aidan's Country Park in the east of Leeds. Starting by St Aidan's RSPB Visitor Centre (alongside the largest preserved walking dragline excavator in Western Europe, known as "Oddball") the route crosses and follows the River Aire to Lemonroyd Marina, before circling the Country Park back to the beginning.
