Thornborough-10 mile and Fun Run is on Bank Holiday Monday 1st May 2017. This familiar village event is now, amazingly, in its 32nd consecutive year. About 250 entrants are expected for this event as usual.
Running concurrently with the Thornborough-10 mile road race is the 5-mile Fun Run. Young and old are warmly invited to enter. As well Thornborough villagers walking or running the course, we expect many people from nearby towns and villages, from several Clubs around the area and sometimes much further afield. If you bring a dog, please keep it on a short lead at all times, we have had problems with this in past years.
The Thornborough Run is a fairly challenging, hilly course on our beautiful country roads. The route is: Start on Thornborough Village Green, up the Nash Road to Dancers Grave crossroads, left to Thornton, in Thornton left and into Thornborough via Back Street. The 10-mile timed run is only for fit and experienced runners, it is twice round the 5-Mile Fun Run course.
Our experienced organisers and marshals are always in attendance, with Safety Marshals, Water Stations and a Lead Car to ensure the safety of the front runners, plus a Tail Car that also assists anyone with problems. You can park anywhere on the High Street, beside the pond or outside the village hall/church. There will be a BBQ, teas and toilets in the chapel and village pub on the Green by the start/finish.
