Event Description

Swaledale Runners


Richmond Castle 10k

11am Sunday 9th October 2022


Certified course measurement 10k
Run under UK Athletics Rules (licence applied for)


The 2022 race will again start and finish in the Batts riverside park area. The race is all on roads apart from a very short section on grass in the Batts. Runners pass the spectacular River Swale Waterfalls before crossing the river at Green Bridge and climbing Sleegill. A quick look back over the shoulder from Sleegill offers fine views of the castle. Runners follow a short circuit round Catterick Garrison then return into Richmond, where they circle Richmond Castle on Castle Walk before enjoying a fast downhill finish into the Batts park area below the castle. NB The route for the 2022 Richmond Castle 10k is the same as 2019 and 2021.

NB. Race HQ, for number collection and registration, will be on The Batts, near the start and finish line. This is different from previous years. 

All finishers receive a commemorative item.

Course records:

Male: Andrew Wiles (New Marske Harriers) 33 mins 55 secs (2019).

Female: Rebecca Smith (Richmond and Zetland Harriers) 42 mins16 secs (2021)

Prize list: first three men and first three women; first in 10-year age categories; teams (three to count); spot prizes.

No entries on day unless race limit is not reached.

Please note: this race is run on the public highway and for safety reasons no audio devices are allowed (including England Athletics-approved bone-conduction-type headphones) – otherwise, you may not hear instructions from marshals and you may be a danger to other runners and pedestrians. Marshals will be instructed to record the race numbers of any runners breaking this rule. 

In the opinion of the organiser, the nature of the course makes this race unsuitable for wheelchair athletes.
