Easter egg-stravaganza returns to Chasewater
The event includes two Junior races along with the 10K and 5K.
The Chasewater Easter Egg 10K & 5K rolls back this Sunday (17 April) and with two new additions for 2022. Children can join in the fun this time and will receive a medal for their efforts.
This race is the third stop on Nice Work’s Easter Tour which begins with the Bridlington 5 Mile on Good Friday (15 April) followed by the Llandudno 5K on Saturday (16 April). It travels to Chasewater on Easter Sunday (17 April) then finishes with the London 10K (18 April) on Easter Monday (18 April). Four races to have a go at and a good way to burn off the extra calories from a weekend of chocolate consumption.
Participants have the option of a 10K (two laps) or 5K (one lap) around a slightly undulating, multi-terrain course at Chasewater Reservoir. It starts at 10.30am from outside the Innovation Centre and continues in a clockwise direction on footpaths and hard compacted trails around the Reservoir. The views are well worth the visit especially those from the top of the dam and an Easter Egg medal and goodies waits at the finish.
Before this are two Junior Races at 10am – 600m and a longer run for older kids, both of which are chip timed.
Themed fancy dress is encouraged and it’s not just for the youngsters: adults are welcome to run as the Easter Bunny or some other character in keeping with the spirit of the event.
Some Covid safety measures remain in place and runners and spectators are requested to follow these on the day.
It is shaping up to be a cracking day of racing!
