The eighth running of the annual Beckley 10K will take place tomorrow (Sunday, 11am start).

Runners of all standards are welcome to line-up in a challenging run along the lanes around the pretty village with race HQ at Beckley Village Centre.

Although hilly in parts, the home stretch is straight and largely downhill-ish so a fast finish is guaranteed. Medals, free beer, homemade cakes and fruit are the reward for all finishers.

Entries are still available online until this evening (Friday). Visit and check the race webpage for details of the online entry links.

You can also enter on the day or, for those who’d like to save a couple of pounds, you can email the organisers your full name, address and club details, if any, and a number will be reserved for you to collect on the day.

All profits from the race - which has traditionally taken place in early November - will go to Beckley Village Centre.

There is also a two-mile fun run which starts with the main race, as well as a children’s race which will start around 10.45am and finish prior to the start of the main 10K race.
