Runners ready to go to town at Evesham
It will be the 15th outing for this community-minded 10K.
All together again on Sunday 10 July as the Evesham Town 10K returns after a two year break. Participants from the area and further afield will once again enjoy the hospitality of this historic market town and the scenic, multi-terrain route.
The Sheldon Bosley Knight Evesham Town 10K is a popular race, namely for the organisation by Evesham Vale RC and marshal support that have received praise in previous years. Not forgetting the course – a mix of roads, paths, grass and grit paths that winds its way around the town.
Also back this year is the Children’s Fun Run for youngsters aged 9 - 14 who complete a mile at Crown Meadow – the location for the 10K start/finish and the Race Village.
The 10K action begins at 9.30am from Crown Meadow and continues on roads, along the River Avon and through parks before finishing in the Meadow. There is a single water station on the course plus more at the end but as this race is held in the height of summer and the possibility of a heatwave, the advice is to be well hydrated beforehand. Keep an eye on the Met Office long range forecast...
Finishers receive a medal, bananas and water then sit and relax in the sunshine whilst watching the prize presentation and applaud the winners.
The event is supporting charities Caring Hands in the Vale and Evesham Adventure Playground.
Anyone who wishes to take part in this midsummer race with community spirit can do so via EntryCentral.
