The Richmond Castle 10k has grown in popularity with entries received from all over the UK and beyond. The course will be the same as last year and is a certified 10K.
New for this year we will be trialling “Gun Start”, “Chip Finish” timing.
The race is limited to 450 runners and this means that entries on the day will only be accepted if this number has not been reached. Early entry is advised. Please check this website for the latest information if you are thinking of entering on the day to ensure you do not have a wasted journey.
The race starts on an area of park land known as "The Batts" and is all on roads apart from a very short section of grass at the start. Runners pass the spectacular Richmond Falls on the River Swale before crossing the river at Green Bridge and climbing Sleegill. A quick look over the shoulder from Sleegill offers fine views of Richmond Castle. Runners are then taken on a short circuit of Catterick Garrison before returning to Richmond and a great finish within the grounds of the castle.
We are extremely grateful to English Heritage for allowing us the use of the castle for our event
The race HQ is again in Richmond Town Hall which is located approx. 50m uphill from the Market Hall. Refreshments are still available from the café in the Market Hall.
