“Our 10K this year raised over £8,800 for our charity – it was amazing. We want next year to be even bigger, so we’re encouraging people to enter early. Get in quick if you want to take advantage of our early bird offer.”

Jacky Massos, Care for Kids North Devon

The course

The 10K will start at Park school on the sports field, and then meander around the historic Rock Park. The race continues along Taw Vale and the Strand using the Tarka Trail and over the Taw Bridge, which is the steepest part of the course. The race will return back to the town square along the riverside and continue back into Rock Park finishing at Park School.

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