There are less than two weeks to go until the annual Croydon 10K comes to town – one of the most popular road races held in the region.
This well-established race, hosted by Croydon Harriers athletics club, will be taking place on Sunday 9th October normally attracting fields of nearly 500 runners.
Previous winners of the race include two-time Olympian Lee Troop, former Indoor World Finalist James Thie and GB junior international cross-country representative Peter Chambers.
The race often attracts some of the best athletes in the region and starts at Lloyd Park Avenue before heading out to Sandilands and the surrounding area.
There is also a corporate team challenge with squads from Trinity School and Southwark Council already entered.
Prizes are on offer for all age groups from junior men & women to veteran’s aged 70+.
Runners of all abilities are always welcome to enter and for many runners every year this is often their first ever event.
For budding young athletes there is always the 3KM fun run which always proves a popular event for 9-14 year-olds.
