Pricey at £26/28
Very much so. More than double what Brighton 10k is.
Hilton Puckrup Hall Tewkesbury 10K 17th August 2014 £12.00 (£14.00 Unatt) Great country lanes & local villages route, super medal & goodies, excellent facilities at the Hilton Hotel, organised by FCR Events Ltd. fyldecoastrunning.org
There are two other 10ks in Worcester I believe. This one has Steve Cram all over it hence the high price. Worcester AC do a 10k on the racecourse. A bit of a naff route (3 laps) but would be very fast. There was also another one planned on the River and down by the Diglis area. Both much cheaper I imagine
As an update I now read that Paula Radcliffe plans to do this one. It's a shame that she could not have just promoted one of the existing ones. I imagine it's the Steve Cram connection. http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/news/radcliffe-plans-race-comeback-with-worcester-city-10k/11985.html
Thanks for the info
The Hilton Puckrup 5 has been cancelled for 2014 and a new event (different time of year being looked at for 2015.
it just so happens that I am away on holiday with the family on the 17th so couldn't do the Puckrup 5 but would be interested in the alternative -
Looking at an event for early Spring 2015 from the Hotel
Peak performance events ran a 10K recently in Worcester and it was terribly organised. I wouldn't touch another of their events with a long barge pole. The Worc. AC 10k is fast and flat and although it is a 3 lapper, its next to the river and quite pretty. There are some great smaller runs in Worcs and Herefordshire: Gords 6, Harewood Hurtle and of course a regular parkrun. There are also plans to start a parkrun in Hereford.
Dave, do you have any more info on the planned Hereford parkrun? Thanks
why age 16? i've ran crowle 10k, evesham 10k & pitchcroft 10k!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm doing this event because it's local for me and it should be nice running through the streets - it's a good city centre route - but the PRICE! honestly! completely ridiculous - and then you have to pay an extra "processing fee" of £2.25 for the pleasure of parting with £25! ! Those guys should also be a bit less heavy-handed with their disclaimer that they expect you to sign - against everything including the laws of the state of California. Flippin' eck! Doesn't give a good impression. Won't be doing any more of their events. & I always thought Steve Cram was a good guy. I now feel bad for not supporting a smaller, locally organised event instead!
