Blenheim 7k 2011
Date: Sunday 8 May 2011
Starts: 11 am
Entries open online: www.blenheim7k.co.uk
Please note our club fixtures on 7th, 8th and 9th May should take priority.
The run takes a scenic route around the trails and paths of Blenheim Palace, taking you past the Palace and over the Grand Bridge, before a spectacular lakeside section.
The Junior race, open to under 15s, starts just after the main 7k and makes the event a great family day out. And entry entitles you to entry to the grounds, so after the race take your time to enjoy the surroundings, designed by Capability Brown, or visit the Palace.
The 7k course is suitable for all ages and abilities. It offers a challenging run for the more experienced, and beautiful surroundings for the beginner or anyone who wants to take a more leisurely pace.
All competitors receive a medal, and there are prizes for the first man and woman, first man over 40, 50, and 60 and first woman over 35, 45, and 55, as well as the first girl and boy under 15.
For the junior race, there are prizes for the first girl and boy, and first girl and boy under 15, 12, and 9.
Entry costs £10.00 for adults and £5.00 for under 15s. Entry includes entry to the Palace grounds.
A supervised bag storage will be available on site.
