Enter our Barnstaple 10k today!

The Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k will take place on Sunday 7 July 2024, starting and finishing at Barnstaple Rugby Club. Our headline sponsors are Brewer, Harding & Rowe Solicitors LLP.

There will be a medal and t-shirt for all finishers* and prizes for the fastest runners in each age category. 


“Last year the Barnstaple 10K raised over £7,200 for our charity – it was fantastic! We’re excited to be at a new venue for the start and finish this year but don’t worry, the route is mainly the same. Entries are now open and we’re offering an Early Bird discount again, so sign up early to take advantage of our offer.”

The 10K will start at Barnstaple Rugby Club, with a loop around Bridge Field before heading out onto the Tarka Trail towards Pottington. The race continues over the Taw Bridge, which is the steepest part of the course. Runners will follow the Tarka Trail to Anchorwood before turning back towards the town, crossing the river again at LongBridge and making their way to Rock Park. Following a loop of the park, the race will return back to the town square along the riverside and continue alongside the river back to the rugby club.

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.

Here’s a map of the course.
