Pete Pinnington Presents are looking forward to again being involved in the Birchwood 10K organised by the Spectrum Striders and sponsored by the Birchwood Shopping Centre.
The event will be held on Sun 19th Aug 2012 and the route will take runners along roads and tarmac footpaths in Birchwood & Croft (Warrington).
- Sign up for both the Birchwood 10K & English Half Marathon – it’s JUST £32.50 – and you will save £10! (Details below).
The day begins at 9.45am with a 1 mile Fun Run, along a traffic-free course mostly on paths in Birchwood Forest Park close to the Birchwood Shopping Centre. The Fun Run is ideal for beginners and for family members of runners in the main 10k race. If you have young children, you can jog with them around the course, a great way to warm up gently for the 10k.
You can pre-enter the Fun Run using the Birchwood 10k Entry Form, or you can enter on the day.
Then at 10.30am the main 10K Run begins with the minimum age for runners being 15yrs!
If you want to run a 10k personal best, then this is the race for you. It attracts runners from all over the north west of England and is run over relatively flat roads and paths around Birchwood. The Birchwood 10k, now in it’s 29th year, just gets better with age!
This race has been ranked in the top 100 UK road races by Runners World Magazine. This race boasts one of the most extensive prize lists that you will find, with over £2000 given away each year in prizes!
All finishers receive the legendary 10k luxury bath towel – much more useful than a medal!
Pete Pinnington Presents will be hosting, playing music & generally entertaining runners & spectators throughout the morning at both the start & finish lines.
