Bayer Newbury 10K Run
Bayer Newbury 10K run and under-16s races - Sunday 29th May, 2016
Bayer is once again partnering the Newbury Athletic Club (NAC) to organise the Bayer Newbury 10K event.
The races will take place on Sunday, May 29th, 2016.
This will be the ninth year of this chip-timed race and will once again include two pre-event runs through the town centre for under-16s.
The races will 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 will be split between the NAC and the Naomi House and Jacksplace charity - last year, over £13,000 was raised.
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.
- Pre-event Run for under 16s - Distance: 1.5km
Start time: 9.20
- Bayer Newbury 10K - Distance: 10km multi-terrain
Start time: 10.00

About Naomi House and Jacksplace
Naomi House and Jacksplace are hospices for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. Most of our guests are unlikely to live into adulthood.
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.
The charity has two specialist units: Naomi House for children, and Jacksplace for teenagers and young adults. Each unit is purpose built and offers an appropriate environment for each age group.
We seek to raise £7 million pounds a year in order to run the two units and to continually deliver our promises and offer our services. The charity currently receives less than 10% of its charitable expenditure from statutory sources.
The support given by Naomi House is unique in the central south of England. Naomi House is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, delivering a range of services to help to relieve families from the day to day pressures of looking after a child or young person with a life limiting condition.
