The Bugatti 10k has its origins in what was the Bugatti Inn at Gretton. It started out as a 5 mile race hosted by fellow local club Cheltenham & County Harriers. After a few years, and a brief hiatus - along with the closure of the Bugatti Inn - the race was reinstated, with the Harriers and Almost Athletes jointly hosting, as a 10k event from the Bugatti Owners' Club at the Prescott Hill Climb.
Set around a single 10k loop of largely quiet country roads, the race takes place on an August Wednesday evening. With chip timing and markers at each kilometre, the course starts with a sharp descent followed by an equally sharp incline before settling into a largely rolling first third. The middle section is very flat (with a water station at approx. 6k) before the course start to undulate again towards a largely inclining final kilometre. Despite this, it is a course sutable for beginners as well as the experienced runner.
The Prescott Hill Climb bar / function room is an ideal place to relax afterwards (with food available), and is where the presentations take place. Prizes are awarded for the top three male and female finishers, along with first age category and team finishers. Each finisher receives a bespoke medal.
