10K Race is LIVE!

MR 10k Trail Race 16th June 2019 - Go-Live today (Friday)!

Entries open today for next year’s event. The event team need some help from you.

In the new year, we’ll be asking for your help on the day. We need 50-60 helpers on the day and we are asking members to consider volunteering rather than racing.

Last year, many of you wanted to volunteer but also get a medal and goody bag so we had an idea of “virtual running”. We were also concerned, last year, that we wouldn’t sell out and so the “virtual runner” concept allowed members to boost our revenue - in the end we sold out and are more relaxed in this respect for next year’s race. We have decided to in 2019, so long as: 1. You are a club member; 2. You volunteer on the day; 3. You pay some money (we’ll work this detail out over the next weeks); you run the course (we propose to run this as a club run the Monday after the race).

We launch the event on social media this evening. We need your help to create a “social media storm” over the weekend, so please can you re-post to your friends and contacts? Many thanks!
