Valentine’s 10k – finisher’s technical t-shirt

23 days to go and entries are ramping up!
We’ve just placed the order for this year’s finishers t-shirt, and here it is.
V10k tee 2016
Please note that we have to guess a portion of the ordered sizes due to entries made after the required order date, as well as on the day entries which we can’t exactly account for. We hope (but cannot guarantee) to have more than enough stock for each finisher and will request/insist that people only take the size requested on entry (which will be indicated on their race number on the day).
We will provide any tees not able to be supplied on the day to those affected at a later date, if at all affected of course.

Valentine’s 10k – 14th February 2016

It’s all systems go at Valentine’s 10k Headquarters at the moment…

The wonderful people at the Association of UK Course Measurers have kindly completed the all-important remeasuring of the course, thus ensuring any PBs and course records are legitimate! The new traffic junction at Malden Rushett led to an eleven metre adjustment of the start line. Many thanks to Hugh Jones at the Association of UK Course Measurers for his help with this.

Run To Live have also provided us with this year’s batch of race numbers and we certainly hope go beyond last year’s high number of 538!

Entries are filling up ahead of last year’s pace so do please get your entries in soon.

That’s all for now and good luck with your training!
