Care for Kids Barnstaple 10K 2020 sponsored by Brewer Harding & Rowe solicitors

5th July 2020

Returning for its fourth year is our popular Care For Kids Barnstaple 10K run 2020! Last year was a complete sell out so we recommend you book your place early. All the proceeds from our run go to our charity, helping local families right here in North Devon. You can find out a bit more about us here.

Two runners crossing the finish lineAbout the run

You’ll start at Park school sports field, meander around the historic Rock Park, continue along Taw Vale and the Strand using the Tarka Trail. Heading over the Taw Bridge (steepest part of the course) before returning back through town square along the river side into Rock Park. The finish line is back at Park School.

Predominately off road using the Tarka Trail and public pavements, the route 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 5th July 2020
