Another classic Cheshire countryside road race brought back to the race calendar by us in 2014. The course is beautifully scenic, well marshalled and last year provided many runners with PBs. Like all our races we have the most up to date integrated chip-timing, free parking, free to download photographs and amazing bespoke medals. This race is hugely popular with some of the fastest runners in the region as well as those testing themselves over the distance for the first time and everyone is welcome.
Race HQ is at Farndon Community Club Crewe Lane Farndon Chester CH3 6NX where race numbers are to be collected from and will be open from 8.00am. Full race instructions will be emailed approximately 10 days before the race.
There is a £100.00 prize for 1st place, £50.00 for 2nd & £25.00 for 3rd open male and female. There are prizes for 1st place in veteran categories. There is also a prize for the 1st male and female teams. All finishers receive a bespoke medal, water and snacks. Entrants must be 16 and over on race day.
Entry cost is £11/13 (Early Bird for first 100 entries) then £16.00 for UKA Affiliated Runners and £18.00 for non-UKA affiliated runners.
Entries on the day will be accepted (subject to the race entry limit being reached) with a £2.00 surcharge on top of the regular entry fee.
From the welcoming village hall feel of Race HQ through to the beautiful autumnal country roads this is Cheshire road racing at its best.
Don’t be fooled by the views though as this race is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the fastest 10ks in the region.
You will spot the great mixture of top local club athletes as well those runners looking to enjoy the great scenery and atmosphere.
Full list of road closure details available on this link in the weeks building up to the race.

“What a lovely scenic course. A predominately flat 10k taking in some breath-taking scenery ~ how lucky we are to have such natural beauty on our doorstep. Car parking was easy – and free – and lots of toilet facilities. Registration was quick and easy. Well stocked water station at 5k and lots of very supportive marshals and spectators around the course. I’m already looking forward to next year. Thank you Bartlett’s Farndon 10k.”
