Timberhonger 10k

History

2014 will be the 12th running of the Timberhonger 10k, so called as most of the route is on Timberhonger Lane.  It has traditionally been part of Bromsgrove Carnival weekend with all profits donated to charity. 

This year we will be raising money for Friends of the Princess of Wales Community Hospital, Primrose Hospice and Bromsgrove homeless charity the Basement Project.

The Timberhonger 10k is organised by Bromsgrove and Redditch Athletic Club under UK Athletics rules.

The Course

The 10k course is accurately measured with a course certificate.  It is a picturesque but challenging route with a number of testing hills and is suitable for first timers and experienced runners alike.  The route starts at the Bromsgrove end of Timberhonger Lane, close to Sanders Park at 6.00pm, then snakes it’s way down Timberhonger Lane for approximately 3k before doing two 2k loops round Berry Lane and Newhouse Lane, then returning back up Timberhonger Lane to Sanders Park.  The race finishes with a run across the back field of Sanders Park to the finishing line near the front car park.  All roads will be closed to traffic for the duration of the race.  For a map click here.  Runners World give the race an 82% approval rating with 97% of respondents saying they would do it again.

Date and Time

This year’s race will be on Saturday 12th July starting at 6pm

Prizes

Important…

Personal music players are not permitted to be worn during the race and organisers reserve the right to disqualify any runners breaching this rule.  Runners must be able to hear marshals instructions at all time.  In addition some parts of the course are narrow and runners need to be able to hear the calls of faster runners wishing to pass.

Runners enter at their own risk and the organisers will not be responsible for any loss or injury that may occur.
