The 2018 event is set for Sunday June 10th at 9:30am.

Whether it’s your first race, or you are a seasoned runner in training for a summer or autumn full/half marathon, the Chew Valley 10k is here for you.  It’s a fun and friendly atmosphere, and if you ignore the giant hill slap-bang in the middle of the course, it’s actually quite an enjoyable event.

If you needed more incentive, the Chew Valley 10k also has some prizes. Once the results are in and checked, there are trophies available to the winner overall, and then the winners in the following categories –

the Team Award

Women – Under 20, 20 – 34Vet 35, Vet 40, Vet 45, Vet 50, Vet 55, Vet 60

Men – Under 20, 20 – 39Vet 40, Vet 45, Vet 50, Vet 55, Vet 60, Vet 65

Technicalities: Our race is sanctioned by Athletics England (UKA Licence no: 2018-32293), and we abide by their “UKA Rules of Racing”.  Therefore, headphones are not allowed… however, they have updated their rules to allow Aftershock bone conducting headphones ONLY. This link at their website explains.

The race starts by Bishop Sutton Football Club, this would be the perfect location for family and friends to gather and cheer on the runners. Consider this Race HQ – we will have refreshments available, a BBQ, bouncy castles, a live band and much more planned – including freshly made cakes, now a traditional post run treat!

For the runners, the Clubhouse is your point for pre-race registration, collecting your chip and numbers – including a box of safety pins (because you always forget them), provides facilities for changing, toilets, shelter from the rain and a supervised bag drop centre. Strategically placed water stations will be plotted around the course, and First Aid cover will be provided by the Avon & Somerset Rescue Team and the Community Paramedics.

 

More detail will be confirmed as we near the event, and this website will be updated as soon as information becomes available. Feel free to engage with us via our Facebook Page and Twitter Feeds.
