As Village life creeps towards normality we are pleased to report that another annual event, the Walkington 10k and Fun Run, will take place on the evening of 9th July 2021.
This annual event, organised by Beverley Athletic Club, started in 1996 and is extremely popular today amongst club runners and fun runners alike. The last time the race was held was July 2019 there were 1000 application forms issued: this year the race entry numbers have had to be reduced to 500 runners for the10K. This limit on 10K entries has been reached and the list is closed to new applicants. There are still a few places available for the Fun Run and applications can be made here.
The Race HQ is located on Walkington Playing Fields and both events start on Little Weighton Road. The Fun Run starts at 6:45pm and the 10k at 7:30.
I remember the race last time it was held and the evening was warm and sunny so let’s hope for similar conditions for the welcome return on the Walkington 10K.
