Entries open for the Miles and Barr Alan Green Memorial 10 mile race

The Thanet 10

Entries are now open on the Thanet Roadrunners website and the Run Britain website for the Miles and Barr Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Coastal Road race.

The pre-Christmas ten miler race will take place on December 3 along the Thanet coast from Westgate Pavilion to Palm Bay and back.  Also known as the ‘Thanet 10’, the event i memory of the Thanet Roadrunners founder is a great chance for runners to stretch their legs before the Christmas Party season.

The race typically sells out its 500 places very quickly.  The out and back coastal route through Margate is mostly flat and is a good one for those hunting a personal best. But watch out if it’s windy!

As well as receiving a medal, the event will include a free cake stall for all entrants. Club member, Andy Stevens will be the official race photographer and his photographs will be made available to download for free after the event.

Spencer Hoult, Race Director for the ‘Miles and Barr Alan Green Memorial 10 Mile Coastal Road Race, said: “I would say to anyone thinking of entering the race that it’s a fantastic coastal route with some great views it’s also very flat so an excellent opportunity for personal best.

“This year’s charity is again the Pilgrims Hospice. They do such amazing work in the most difficult of circumstances.  The care and support they provide have helped so many families in Thanet.  As our chosen charity they will receive at least £1 from every entry received so let’s make this race a sell-out.”

The race will be  run under UK Athletics rules. The minimum age 17 on race day. Entry £16- £18 with £1 from each entry donated to a local charity.
