Gato Sports Summer 10k - Race 2

Wont it be dark?

We hope not! Sunset is over 2 hours from the race start. 

How far is the race?

10k! This might seem a bit pointless to mention given the name but this is different to a normal Big Bear Event. You'll get the same love, a medal and some goodies but you can't run all night!

Gato Sports?

They are our event partners. They've kindly donated some excellent prizes for our male and female first place finishers. They are a sportswear company that specialise in great kit and accessories, especially night time running with lots of excellent reflective and lit items. Coventry Runner are our local stockist.

Entry information?​

No entries on the day

There is a strict entry limit due to the size of the car park. Once the event gets down to the last places we'll endeavour to make people aware through social media and via the mailing list. Once the event is full a waiting list will be created. This will be available through the normal entry site.

Parking is (at the time of writing) £3 and will need to be paid. This money goes straight back to the site and is there main income so please ensure you pay. Of course car sharing is always the best option!

Course description

The course is on the tab above. Ground conditions will be firm as the route is on a crushed stone pathway. The route is fully marked and essentially a 2 lap course. Ryton Pools isn't flat but calling it hilly would be quite a stretch too!

Is this a cupless event?

No. Unlike our other events we will have some biodegradable cups with water/electrolyte available on the course and we will have hot drinks available before and after too. If you have a foldable cup you can bring, even better but we don't insist on it for our short races.


Permission for this event has been obtained from Warwickshire County Council
