Entry for this year’s Woodbridge 10k opens soon - but be ready as it books up quickly
Runners wanting to take part in this year’s Woodbridge 10K are being warned to ‘stand by’ when entry opens in March - as the event often books up within 30 minutes.
The round-the-town charity race, which sees the whole town turn out to cheer the runners, returns to Woodbridge on Sunday, May 19, in its 38th year.
The races, which include a 10k route for those aged 15 and over and a junior 1.5k race for those aged between seven and 15, follow a windy course through the streets of Woodbridge.
Entry for the races opens at 12 noon on Saturday, March 9.
The races raise thousands for local good causes - last year £12,000 was split between five charities.
This year the race’s chosen charities are the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Fresh Start - New Beginnings, Just42, Lapwing Education, MIND and Suffolk Accident and Rescue Service.
A spokesman for the race said: “Due to the popularity of the races, those wishing to enter are encouraged to ‘stand by’ as the entry system goes live at noon – the races typically fill up within 30 minutes.”
