Entry Fee: £18.00 - £20.00
A new, fast, flat, out and back two lap 10k road race on fully closed roads.

New, fast, flat, 10k road race.

This new 10k is a tribute and a memorial to our friend and fellow Harrier Pete Shields who died early in 2020. Pete was a gifted runner himself and an outstanding coach, who had guided runners from far and wide, also leading training sessions for athletes at club, national and international levels over many years. He was exceptional at getting the best out of all runners, but especially skillful in encouraging those young enthusiastic runners who are the lifeblood of the sport. Over this fast, flat, out and back two lap course it's a great opportunity to come and run a new PB, or even set a course record as it is being run for the very first time. But the style of the course with minimal climbing, means it is also a good opportunity for those less experienced wanting to tackle a 10k for the first time to give it a go. Profits from the race will be given to Marie Curie Cancer Care in appreciation of the help and care they gave to Pete and his family when he was very poorly. As this is a two lap race headphones, or similar devices, (unless medically prescribed) are not permitted. Runners must be aged 15 or over.
