The Adnams Southwold 10k is now full

By Emma Hibbert, also posted in News on

Adnams 10K runThanks to everyone who has signed up to our 10k run. Today has been unprecedented in the speed that the 800 places filled up. Last year it took approximately 8 hours for the same number of places to fill, based on that, we opened the site for entries at midday thinking that people would have time either in their lunch hour, or this early this evening. We expected that the race would fill quickly but were somewhat surprised that all the places were filled faster than many of us actually ran the race last year! We love the fact that our race is so popular, we are just sorry that so many of you are disappointed not to have secured a place. We’ve had some questions about whether we could fit more runners in to the race and / or run another race. 800 is pretty much the maximum that our course can cope with - not just for runners, but also for making sure that we can get everybody into Southwold and parked up safely. As for hosting another race, we're best at making beers and spirits rather than race organisers! The Adnams 10k started six years ago as part of a Princes Trust fundraising challenge. It was a one-off, just a fundraiser for one year, 400 runners max… but we’ve created a big, beautiful monster which we’re really proud of and which, despite the cold, windy November conditions, seems like something you’d like us to continue with. If we decide to organise the race again for 2016, we will review the application process to see if there’s anything we can do to make it better for everyone. Apologies again to everyone who missed out on getting a place this year. Don’t forget that we are always very grateful if you’d like to take part as a volunteer rather than a runner, so if you’re interested in helping make this event stay safe and enjoyable for runners as well as spectators, please do let us know. All proceeds from the race go to charity.
