The First 10k To Run Through The High Street – #RunWeybridge Sunday 5th March 2017
THE FIRST WEYBRIDGE 10K IS NOW CLOSED FOR ENTRIES
1,000 runners will be participating in the Weybridge 10K, organised by Weybridge Sports and hosted by the Weybridge Health Club & Spa. The event promises to be a great day of sporting success and community spirit!
We have a fantastic 10k route organised that takes you by the river, into the heart of Weybridge High Street, past the Monument and along the boutique shops of Baker Street.
Our Race Village is where we are welcoming the community to come down and try out some local delicacies from our selection of market stalls and also support the runners as they cross the finish line.
Volunteers Needed – Can You Help?
We are looking for help volunteering on the day and would love some of fellow local businesses and residents to help us out and produce a fantastic first year event.
We would be looking for help along Weybridge High Street, Walton Lane and Thames Street, marshalling runners at key points.
If you are interested please call Tom Eastwood on 07786 911 036 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
