On Sunday 10th May 2020, Titchmarsh will host its annual 10k Road Race & 3k Fun Run. The main event marks the 24th anniversary of what has become one of the most popular road races in the region.
The 10k starts at 11am. The course takes runners out of the village and through some of the prettiest rolling green countryside the county has to offer before doubling back just before Clopton Church.
The 3k Fun Run starts an hour earlier at 10.00am. It uses part of the same route and is a great event for youngsters and not-so-serious runners – including mum & dad!
The Titchmarsh 10k is held under UKA Rules. Road Race Licence Number: 2020-40096. Course Measurement Certificate Number: 11/031.

Registration on the Day
You can still enter both events on the day – but please leave plenty of time to do so. There will be a very large field of runners and queues are likely to be long. Registrations must be completed at least 20 minutes before the race begins. If you have not completed your registration before that cut-off time you will not be permitted to start the event.
Race registration tent will be open at the Clubroom on Titchmarsh High Street at 8:45am.
Titchmarsh is 2 miles from Thrapston, just off the A14 at junction 13. Please approach the village from the A605 (other roads will be closed on the morning of the race) and follow signs to parking at the Playing Field.
Please note that access to the village directly from the A14 is not possible. Do not follow your satnav!
The 10k race has a UK Athletics permit and is open to all individuals and/or club runners.
Water stations are provided along the way and medical facilities are on-hand. Car parking, changing facilities and refreshments are also available. The roads are closed to through traffic for both events.
Please note: Runners in the main race must be 15 years or older and children in the 3k must be accompanied by an adult if they are 7 or under.
