The Winchester 10km Road Race started back in 1983 as a 10-mile distance. The race adopted the popular 10km format in the late 1980's.
The race will feature a 1 lap closed road route starting outside the historic Winchester Guildhall in The Broadway. The start is in front of the impressive King Alfred Statue. The route heads up St George's Street before going out towards the village of Kingsworthy. The return leg passes through the village of Headbourne Worthy and back towards Winchester before finishing at The North Walls Recreation Centre. The route is a mix of urban and countryside parkland.
It's a super city centre vibe 10K with over 2000 runners making it a super atmosphere! The entry fee includes chip timing, photography and a finisher medal.
"My fourth time doing the Winchester 10k, organised by the award-winning Challenging Events team, and once again it didn’t disappoint. This is a mix of town and country, flat and hilly and a friendly race to boot. As always with CE event there’s an impressive medal and a nice tee shirt all included for a reasonable price. A big race atmosphere without being overwhelming so a great event for all abilities." Racecheck review 2023
