ROCKINGHAM 10 - BACK FOR A 5th YEAR AFTER DUATHLON ROCKINGHAM - LAST EVER!!!
UPDATE SEPT 2018: The venue has been sold & this will be the LAST TIME to run around this iconic venue! Don't miss out!
IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE NORTHANTS ATHLETICS ASSOCIATION, ROCKINGHAM 10 IS THE 2018 DESIGNATED RACE FOR THE COUNTY 10 MILE CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE 3RD YEAR!
AWARDED 2nd place: 5k - EAST MIDLANDS CATEGORY - FROM VOTERS IN THE RUNNING AWARDS 2018
Set your pace - sprint, run or jog - just enjoy it!
Set at Rockingham, Europe's fastest racing circuit. A very fast course which is ideal for setting a PB or going for some end of season glory. This fantastic running event enjoys it's 5th year at a superb modern location after DUATHLON ROCKINGHAM. Free parking coupled with race HQ set in the pit garages and the race finish line in the pit lane this is going to be a classic event.
Suitable for all levels - no traffic - no potholes - no worries - just you & the smooth tarmac ahead! If you're looking for that next challenge to 10km, upping the distance to 10 miles, training for a half or full marathon, need to keep your winter training on track or you just want to smash your PB!
We know this is a FAST course. The Rockingham10 mile course record was created in November 2014 at a lightning speed of 52:29!! Will you take the chequered flag and set the course record or is it about completing a new milestone?
HEADPHONES. Rockingham 10 is a closed circuit (road) race. Although we are on tarmac we have no traffic on the course. Therefore headphones are allowed, but we do advise that because you are on a course over 2 or 3 laps you do need to hear marshals instructions, so we do discourage the wearing of headphones. To confirm we will not be handing out any disqualifications for any person who does wear headphones.
5k: This event can be a gentle stroll with the family or a race to get your 5km PB. - No age restrictions in the last race at this venue!

Our charity Partner for this event is a local charity in Corby; Lakelands Hospice.
Lakelands Hospice is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses.
They are supporting the event with marshals & manning the baggage drop with volunteers. We ask for a cash donation for each bag dropped off. Please have a look at their website - http://www.lakelandshospice.org.uk/
Since they are also unable to run their Brass Monkey running event at Rockingham Circuit in 2019 let’s make this the best year ever & raise lots of funds for their marvellous service.
