Fast Friday 10k
19 April 2019
A great multi-lap, traffic free and pancake flat 10km run on footpaths and cycle tracks around Exwick Playing Fields and the River Exe Flood Relief. This event is suitable for people chasing PB's along with novice runners...so get your Easter Holiday off to a flyer!!!
The race is on shared footpaths, so please be courteous to other users – this is a condition of us using this venue.The route will be marked with signs and temporary spray paint, there will also be marshal in place to direct and cheer you on ? The course has been officially measured at 10,000m and each 1km will be signed on the day (these have been measured with a GPS).Route Update: As we have advertised there has been uncertainty around flood defense works on the route and how this could affect our proposed route that we used in 2016 & 2017. When we opened entries, the contractors were confident that all the works on the route would be completed in good time before the event. Unfortunately, we have been informed that there have been several delays in their work and currently it is looking unlikely the work will be finished in time (although they are looking at ways to accelerate route).Therefore, with this uncertainty we have taken the decision that we will revert to our Plan B Route:As you will see this route is a 4 lapper, this has been accurately measured so will count for an official PB’s and rankings – there are less turns and ramps than original route therefore it is a quicker route! However, we except multiple lap routes aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. So following this news if anyone who as entered (before 11.01.18) would like to cancel their entry and get a refund then we are happy to do this, you just need to let us know via email – email@example.com by 25th January, after this time we won’t be offer to do refunds.We are disappointed to have to make this decision but feel it is the right thing to do under the circumstances.
