Step Up 4 Good 10K and family fun runs in Newbury this October

step 4 good start

The launch of the annual Step Up 4 Good 10K with family fun runs, in Newbury, has been met with great interest.

The fourth year of the event  takes the event from the dramatic terrain of Greenham Common to the state-of-the-art Newbury Racecourse on Sunday 13th October. The main 10K race is a single loop on road and track, suitable for experienced club athletes and new runners looking for a flat, scenic and friendly race.

This autumn event caters for all abilities and the Newbury Runners pacing team will be in action again to help you reach your PB target time on this diverse and varied route.

The  indoor event village will be filled with a wonderful community buzz and packed full of local charities, delicious food, refreshments, music, bag drop, bar and children’s entertainment.

Located at the iconic Newbury Racecourse, this is an exciting family event that allows you time to run with the children and then run your own race before finishing the day browsing the various stalls and food outlets within the stunning grandstand building. 

The  popular event consists of three distances, starting with the Family-Mile/Para-Mile, 3K Fun Run and the main 10K race, all taking place within the safe environment of the Racecourse.

Parents can run for free to support their children or opt for the adult entry option. New for 2019 we are offering a unique all-inclusive race, for children under 15.

Those with a disability or impairment will have the opportunity to run/walk a mile at their own pace and it’s completely free to enter. Our 3K Fun Run is back by demand and open to older children and adults. There is plenty of space for spectators to cheer their little ones from the Grandstand. The Big 10K is a scenic single loop on road and hard packed paths, in and around the perimeter of the racecourse.

This is a brand new route which is fast, flat and ideal for PB’s, run under UK Athletics rules, perfect for competitive club athletes and aspiring runners looking for a friendly event. The route is fully marshalled, marked in kilometres, with water stations. Every paid entry receives a bib, chip-timing, tech t-shirt and Finisher medal. Our indoor event village will be full of charities, food, music and entertainment. It’s going to be an exciting family event, with time to jog round with the kids, then run your own timed race, before finishing the day browsing the stalls and food outlets within the Grandstand building. Run for fun or raise money for local community projects in the build up to race day.
