Riverside Runners wish you warm welcome to their 30th Anniversary 10K and fun run. All profits from the race will be distributed to the Club's nominated charities - MIND and The Lewin Stroke & Rehabilitation Unit, Addenbrookes.

Parking

The Race starts and finishes in Regatta Meadow, Riverside Park, PE19 7SR. Unless there is monsoonal rain in the next few days, parking should be available in the park.  Please follow marshal's directions or alternatively use the town centre car parks, details at Riverside10KParking , all of which is within 800m of the start/finish area.

Please do not park on Crosshall Road or Milton Avenue as this causes traffic issues.

Registration

Registration Opens at 8:00am, please arrive early if possible to collect your race number and T-shirt as registration will be busy later on.

If you would like to change your T-Shirt for another size please come back after the race and we will try to help.  We will not be able to do swaps before the race - this is to ensure that everyone gets their first choice size.

Numbers will not be posted to you before the event.

Baggage

A Baggage Tent will be provided next to the Registration Tent. Please drop your bag off in good time before the start. All bags are left at the owners risk.

Refreshments

All proceeds from the home made cakes this year are going to the Papworth Hospital Charity - please stay and enjoy them.  You've earned it!

 

Alan Turnbull will be providing a sports massage service.

Toilets

There are toilets adjacent to the start/finish area. In addition there are 8 toilets in Riverside Car Park 250m away – please make use of these too during busy times.

Fun Run

The 10K Race

Entries are available on the day, subject to the entry limit not being reached.  The cost is £20 and we cannot guarantee a T-Shirt will be available in your size.  If entering on the day you will be asked to pick up your T-shirt after the event - first come, first served.

  • The improvements made to the route in 2016 will remain for 2017. Course Map

  • There is a small ditch 100m into the course - there are bridges at the right and left, or it is simple enough to hurdle. ;-)

  • This is a multi-terrain event - some areas of the park and the off road sections of the course are uneven.  Please take extra care on these.

  • Some paths are narrow and as a public right of way there may be other users. Be considerate and follow marshalls instructions.

  • Anyone running with headphones will be disqualified. The event is run under UKA rules (Licence no. 2017-29834) and the wearing of headphones is not permitted..

Sorry, no dogs or buggies in the 10K.
