Bayer Newbury 10K Run
Bayer Newbury 10K run and under-16s races - Sunday 28th May, 2017
The 2017 races took place on Sunday, May 28th, 2017, with Bayer once again partnering the Newbury Athletic Club (NAC).
This is the tenth year of this chip-timed race and once again included two pre-event runs through the town centre for under-16s.
The races support Naomi House and Jacksplace again this year, hospices for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. The charity provides care to families and young adults living in communities across the seven counties of Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
Entry fees are split between the NAC and the Naomi House and Jacksplace charity - in 2016, almost £14,000 was raised and the total for 2017 will be announced at a later date.

About the races:
All races start in the Market Place, Newbury, and races for the under-16s follow a route around the town centre on traffic free roads. The Bayer Newbury 10K race climbs gently for the first 3km, followed by a short descent. It is then flat for the rest of the course. Approximately 7km of the course is on the road and the remainder on footpaths and the canal towpath.
