Debbie Fortune launches the Chew Valley 10k

Nearly 100 runners have entered the 2014 Chew Valley 10k so far this year, so for anyone thinking about it now is definitely the time to commit and get into training! To enter, visit, where entry costs £14 for adults (or £12 for runners affiliated to a UK Athletics club). This year the event will accept up to 600 runners and up to 250 children will also be able to compete in the 1km Fun Run, with entry forms available nearer the time.

The Chew Valley 10k organisers are now seeking 90 volunteers who would be interested in being a marshal for the event. This is a vital part of the event and a really fun job as well. Marshals are there to show runners the route, to be on hand in case of accidents but most importantly to encourage and cheer on the runners as they go by! There is a full marshal briefing at the event so no experience is necessary. Anyone interested in helping out or who would like further information should contact the organisers on
