Race is now full

We will be reopening the run on Friday the 21st June we have 20 places no running shirts will be guaranteed.

Returning for a third year in a row is our popular Care For Kids Barnstaple 10K run 2019! Last year was a complete sell out so we recommend you book your place early.

About the run

Start at Park school sports field, meander around the historic Rock Park, continue along Taw Vale and the Strand using the Tarka Trail and over the Taw Bridge (steepest part of the course) before returning back via town square along the river side into Rock Park to finish back at Park School.

Predominately off road using the Tarka Trail and public pavements; it is a mostly flat, fast course perfect for a first race as well as an ideal opportunity to gain a personal best. (Approximately measured 10K)

We regret that the course is unsuitable for wheelchairs. No dogs, pushchairs or walkers permitted. Competitors must be over 15 years of age to run. Entry fees are non-refundable.

Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k will be on the morning of 7th July 2019
