About This Activity

The fabulously fast Ellesmere 10km race is back for 2018 and the date is confirmed as Sunday 26th August. This is as fast and as popular as ever! This race genuinely does have PB potential for runners prepared to take it on. The Course record is 29min 12 seconds   The race is a mix of road and well surfaced flat trail, very gentle undulations with just one sharp turn and a hump-back canal bridge to negotiate. Plus some stunning scenery to zoom your way through.   The prize money this year is £100 for first place, 2nd (£50) and 3rd (£25) for both Male and Female.   Chip timing, Technical t-shirt and Medal to all 10k runners whilst Fun Runners receive a Medal as well as free parking. The venue is Lakelands School, which has changing facilities and there will be tea and coffee and baps and cakes on offer within the venue. The sun usually shines on this race.   Ellesmere is a delightful small town with plenty to do and scenic vantage points to watch the race from. The race entry is capped at 500 runners so be sure to enter quickly before it's sold out.   The race takes place this year on 26th August 2018, starting at 11:15am.   This year there is also a 2k Fun Run for children! Starting at 10:45am   Event details and schedule
