Nuneaton 10k back and better than ever!
Published on Friday, 27th August 2021
The Nuneaton 10K is back for 2021 and it’s even better than ever with the addition of a 2k Junior Fun Run!
After last year’s 10k was cancelled due to Covid, Sunday 12 September will see a welcome return of this popular town centre event. Delivered by Nuneaton Harriers Athletics Club alongside volunteers from other clubs, the 2021 race is warming up to be the best one yet.
The flat terrain is an ideal personal best course and a great introduction to longer distances for newer runners. This year, to encourage more children and families to get involved and initiate an early love of running, organisers have arranged a junior race to coincide with the main event. Participants between the ages of 7-14 are invited to join the fun.
Eric Fowler, Chair of Nuneaton Harriers said:
"As the West Midland athletics club of the year we have gained a reputation for organising really great events for athletes of all standards. We're delighted that we've made the 10k better still this year by adding in the children's fun run".
The 10k three-lap course will start at Nuneaton Town Hall at 9.30am and travel through Coton Road, Avenue and Attleborough Road finishing at Pingles Athletics Stadium. Starting shortly after, the junior run will set off on a route from the slip road by the museum.
10k online entry costs £15 for affiliated runners and £18 if unaffiliated with a bespoke medal included in the fee (on the day entries are £2 extra). The 2k junior fun run online entry costs £3, on the day entry £5.
There will be some road closures and local residents have been made aware that there will be some disruption between 8.30 and 11am on the morning of the race.
