Keep smiling up the hills at the Woodcote 10K

Put the Woodcote 10K to the test

The charity race is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2023.

Throw yourself into the deep end this January by entering the Woodcote 10K (Sunday 8 January) and take on a hilly challenge for charity. Starting the New Year off with a hard, hilly race...

The Woodcote 10K is organised by The Rotary Club of Pangbourne with funds raised going to the National Association of Blood Banks, Purley Park Trust and other chosen charities. These worthy causes will benefit from race proceeds as well as sponsorship, helping to make a difference to people’s lives. 

Known as the “Toughest 10K in the South Chilterns”, this race has a course for the top amateur and club runner alike whose legs (and lungs) will be pushed to their limits. There are more than enough hills to keep the climbers happy which they’ll encounter in the second half and a good variety of terrain to keep things interesting. 

It starts at 10.15am from Woodcote Village Hall in Oxfordshire and is downhill for the first two to three miles which are followed by the ascents. Probably a good idea to take on fluids at the water station and stay well hydrated for these. 

There is a trophy for the overall winner; trophies for the top three men and women; vet category winners (male and female) and the first junior male and female. All finishers receive a medal. 

2023 is the 40th anniversary of this race. Entries are limited to 600 and the organisers will update everyone on the website if the race is close to full. 

So don’t delay: sign up at the Woodcote 10K website.
