It's nearly time for the Adnams 10K…

Adnams 10K runWe've put up the road closure advance-warning notices, and we've run the course to check its condition (presently the harbour is home to a swarm of puddles), but most importantly, the medals are here and we're starting to fill up the runners' goody bags! For the 800 of you who have entered this year's race, you'll be receiving your Race Pack with your race number from Race Timing Systems shortly. You can download the race details as a pdf here, and there's also a copy included in your pack. Don't forget to arrive in plenty of time to get your car parked on the day; it takes around 10 minutes to walk from the car parks, either at the Harbour on the corner of Ferry Road and Blackshore, or at the Common  to the start line near to The Harbour Inn. There will be estimated finishing-time line-up markers at the start by the roadside (for example 45 minutes or 60 minutes) at the start so that the faster runners are not held up too much by slower runners when the race begins. Your timing chips will only start once you've crossed the start mat, so being at the back won't affect your official finishing time. There will be water available on the course, and we're lucky enough to have two loo stops on the route should the need arise. To keep you going on the day, just think of your finisher’s medal and goody bag at the end – it’ll be worth it! If you haven’t run the Adnams 10K before, you might like to read Liz’s route report here. We've always had fantastic support for our runners along the route, so why not come along to cheer everyone on. The race takes place on Sunday 24th November at 11am. The start is near The Harbour Inn, and the finish line is opposite The Red Lion on South Green, Southwold. If you'd like to help out on race day or if you have any queries about the race - please contact Emma Hibbert by email.
