THIS IS A TRAFFIC FREE EVENT
Welcome to the inaugural “The Marches School, Oswestry 10K” Road Race. We are grateful for the support we have received to re-establish this town route in celebration of Oswestry Olympians 40th anniversary. It has been many years since it was last run but I know there are many who have fond memories.
The race has a full UKA licence. (2020-38776).
Starting and finishing at the Marches School, the course is mainly flat but we have incorporated some gentle inclines just to keep you a little challenged! It is confined to roads within the boundaries of our historic Market Town. The Town centre, with its half-timbered buildings, bustling pubs and the St Oswald’s Church will form part of the course, where we hope the residents of the Town and visitors alike, will congregate to shout, cheer and encourage all runners. The course has been finalised and is available via http://www.oswestryolympians.com/ and the Marches School Oswestry 10K Facebook page. It will be included in the course programme, a copy of which will be given to all runners on race day together with their race number. There will be one water station on the course with additional water available to runners at the finish. Should the weather be particularly hot on the day additional water stations may be added.
All finishes will be rewarded with a bespoke medal and t-shirt on completion of the race.
*Please note the cut off time for this event is 90 minutes--after this time runners will still be able to complete the race but will be asked to move onto the footpaths to allow for the roads to reopen*
