We encourage everyone to sign up to this event, from complete beginners to professional runners.

Even if you enter the race as an individual, through our Town and Gown 10k online community you may find a running buddy to train and participate with.


Friends and family can enter as part of a team. Whoever sets up the group can either enter fellow team members' details and pay for their entry or they can email the details to the members to complete at a later date.

Please make sure you make all team members aware of your chosen team name.
