The race is licenced by RunBritain - licence No: 2021-41576 and run under UK Athletics Rules. To take part, you must be aged 15 or older on the day of the race.

Race entry limit: 1200.

In the case that national, regional or local Coronavirus restrictions are imposed at the time of the race, we will look at the situation as fairly as we can: we will offer a choice of: deferment to the following year, transfer to the Virtual 10K or if possible (depending on the costs already committed at the time), offer a part refund.

Race Details:

The profile of the race route is mostly flat and there’s a great chance for the Birchwood 10k to be your next personal best. The 10Km race route is certified to be accurately measured and is along roads and tarmac footpaths in Birchwood and the village of Croft.

The race is chip timed to give you spot-on results quickly.

The race also offers an extensive prize lists with prizes across all age categories.

Race numbers will be collected on race day, using a dynamic race number allocation system provided by Nifty Timing. You will need to visit the Race HQ from 8.15 to check in using your name and date of birth on one of the tablet screens and your number with integral timing chip, will be issued. This is a proven and efficient system but please allow yourself plenty of time to collect your number before the race starts at 10am. If Covid-19 measures mean that this system is not suitable, numbers with chips will be posted ahead of race day.

The minimum age for runners is 15 years old on race day.

The entry limit is 1200 runners and the race has been full before the closing date in the past, so don’t hesitate, get your place booked. Closing date for race entries is midnight on the Friday before race day and there will be no entry on the day.

The start of the 10k race is opposite Birchwood Railway Station (near the Shopping Centre car park 4) and finishes on Birchwood Boulevard, about 400m away from the start area.

There will be portable toilets, ample parking, and race support at Race HQ in "Spencer House" next to the car parks. Unfortunately we are unable to offer facilities to store bags or valuables.
