Sonning 10k

Next Race: 23/05/2021

Sonning 10k & 5k 2020 Starting Waves HERE

Please note - If the event is cancelled due to Coronavirus, we will look to choose another date when the event could be held. All entries will be carried over to the rearranged event, or next years event if the delay is significant - we hope the 2021 event will revert back to May.

Chip Timing. 

Each 10k and 5k finisher to receive a breakfast roll! (veggie option available) - food will be individually wrapped for take-away and the staggered start will reduce queuing.

 

Due to Covid-19 we have made some specific changes to the event for 2020:

- Entries have been limited to 300, so get in quick to secure your place.

- We have unfortunately had to cancel the Kids Fun Run. The advice we have received concluded that having large numbers of children accompanied by their parents/supporters was to risky for all under the current Covid-19 restrictions.

- There will be no briefings or trophy presentations on the day, however we anticipate medals being sanitised and hung for collection. Online video briefings will be sent electronically prior to the event and trophies will be posted out to winners after the event. These measures should reduce the need for any mass gatherings at the event.

- Spectators are discouraged from attending the event, those that do attend will be asked to maintain social distance.

- Staggered start times will be used from 08:00, with faster runners going first in groups of 6 every 30 seconds based on their predicted finish times. These will be issued before the event and runners will be encouraged not to turn up too far in advance.

- Runners shall be required to maintain social distancing whenever possible throughout the event, unless overtaking.

- There will be no "bag drop" facilities - to minimise queuing and congregating - and the potential impact on volunteers.

- Hand sanitiser will be available at registration and at the start/finish.

- Runners should bring their own drinks for the finish line, which they can mark with their race number (or own label) and place on a table at the finish. No water station shall be provided on the course.

- We have changed the course for 2020 to remove the narrow two-way stretch along the narrow river path - see course map here.

- No access to the clubhouse changing/toilet facilities will be allowed - portaloos will be provided at the venue and social distancing will need to be maintained whilst queuing. Throughout the site, but particulalry when using the loos, we recommend the use of face coverings and hand sanitiser.

- Refreshments and snacks will be available for contactless purchase.

- Competitors will be expected to agree to a Participant Code of Conduct here.
