Frenchay 10k 40th Anniversary Run
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - 27 July 2020
The 2020 Frenchay 10k run which was scheduled to take place on the 6 September has been cancelled.
The Frenchay 10k Charity Committee took this difficult decision as the UWE Glenside campus is no longer available to us to start and finish the run due to the continuing coronavirus situation.
The Frenchay 10K is one of the country's oldest 10K events. First held in 1980, the 2020 run with be our 40th anniversary run. The race was conceived with the joint purpose of staging a well-organised run for serious runners and beginners alike and raising money for local charities.
Running legend Nick Rose, Olympian, commonwealth Games silver medalist, one-time British 10k national champion & half marathon world record holder will be starting the 40th Frenchay 10k run and presenting the trophies.
Our chosen charities for 2020 are BRACE (funding research into Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia) & It's in the Bag (providing support for men with testicular cancer in the South-West) and Freewheelers EVS, “delivering essential blood and medical supplies in your area”.
The run starts & finishes in the UWE Glenside campus and runs through Oldbury Court and along local roads. The course is scenic and undulating and will suit all standards. Unfortunately, the course is unsuitable for wheelchairs.
