FUlly closed road 10k

Every year our fantastic 10k gets bigger and more popular, and we’re delighted it will be back again in 2018.

This is the perfect race for new runners that want a challenge, but don’t want to run the full 13.1 miles of the Half Marathon, or for experienced runners that prefer a shorter, faster race.

The race will take place the same day of the Half Marathon, Sunday 16th September at 9.00am. The races will be staggered with the 10k runners starting 15 minutes before Half Marathon runners.

The 10k is a fully closed, single-lap route that allows you to take in a combination of picturesque country lanes and rural countryside to give every 10ker the same visual treats (distractions) the Half Marathoners enjoy.

Fully closed 10k races are usually the reserve of big cities making this a truly unique run.


About the race

Carefully planned to offer runners a high quality experience the 10k will enjoy the same infrastructure as the Half Marathon, including our huge Gatwick Spire bag drop, the exciting esure festival stage with live music and commentary, a warm-up led by British Military Fitness, en-route toilets and regular water stations offering bottled water.
Don’t forget you’ll also get your collectable 10k technical t-shirt, bespoke medal, running buff and banana for every finisher.
