Out for a 10K Trot at Tibberton

Cheers! Tibberton Trot 10K is back

Finishers receive a voucher for a free alcoholic drink as a post-race celebration.

Raise a glass to the return of the Tibberton Trot 10K on Sunday 11 September after a two year break due to the pandemic. A community minded event with a lovely course, prizes for the top three, age group and Tibberton resident and a free drink at the finish. 

The Tibberton Trot 10K and Fun Run first appeared in 2019 and after a successful debut, was looking forward to repeating this the following year. Then Covid struck, resulting in live races being cancelled and replaced by virtual runs as an interim measure. 

Organised by Newport & District RC and the local community, the chip timed event begins at 10am with a 1K Fun Run for all ages and a goody bag for each finisher. Then at 11am it is the turn of the 10K which goes on a scenic tour of Tibberton village, along a mix of quiet country lanes, bridlepaths and fields.  

The prize list includes the top three men and women, age group winners and the ‘Owen Meredith’ shield for the first man and woman from Tibberton & Cherrington Parish. There is a bespoke medal, goody bag and a beer voucher – the latter redeemed at the local village pub – for everyone else. 

Local businesses have lent their support with 2019 sponsor Logalog doing the honours once more. The Parish Council and Village Shop have donated to the event for the purchase of the medals and goody bags.    

There is still time to enter and sample the delights of the 10K and the 1K Fun Run in a picturesque location. Sign up for the Tibberton Trot 10K at the AV Timing website.
