Thanks to all of you who entered last year and we hope to see you this year.This years race is the 27th year of running the race in Poole Park
We have the main 10k -a fast PB course with the winning times for the men dipping below 30 minutes on a regular basis- a Dorset Road Race League fixture again this year
Minithon childrens races for the young athletes in the family
The 5km race this year has been opened up to club athletes for the first time and has a prize structure
In the 10k race, the second water station at Turks Lane will return
Hall and Woodhouse -Badger Beers- will have the beer tent open early
We have online entry earlier this year and have entry forms available for all races to download at the Poole Runners website here
thanks Race Directors Poole Runners

2 laps both the same route quite flat its my PB course anyway
It's a very good race. Done it lots of times. My only gripe is that it starts at 2pm (at the beginning of June!!!!).
gb - flat apart from the bridge at the start of the lap and the incline over the far side of the park.......
Well OK ---ish
the course record is 29.09 so it cant be that bad
as for the 2pm start we dont have any choice logistically because of the childrens races in the morning we couldnt ask 1,000 8-12 year olds to run in the heat however the adults can make an informed choice.
Last year we added a second water station which helped enormously St.Johns had no heat realated problems at all
Fancy it again this year Womble??? Badger beer tent
29.09, I think I can beat that
For the first lap any way
I've already posted off my entry - over three weeks ago
And yes, I know about the children's races and yes the new water station is spot on. I'll be there.
Fincher, I judge how well I'm doing from year to year as to how close I am to the leader ...... them at the end of the second lap and me the first.
I cannot do this one now.
I will try the Southampton 10k in May instead ( I hope that has a beer tent).
Good luck everyone
I'm doing this one.... my first long run EVER
I'll be over the moon if i make it at all
Your attention please
The race is nearly full we will be stopping online entry in the next few days so be quick
Lol at the camelbak suggestion - it's only 19k, surely carrying that would make you sweat more with the weight I'm sure it's a good idea really if you do have a problem with heat and are not looking to go as fast as you can.
I've done this race a few times and never done good due to the heat, but its a nice course and i'll be there again his year.
