Entries open soon for 20th 10k race

BEVERLEY Athletic Club has announced that entries for the 2013 Hall Construction Group Beverley 10k will open on Friday, February 1.

This will be the 20th Beverley 10k and organisers are expecting the race to sell out very quickly despite increasing the entry limit to 1,400.

There will be no entries on the day and runners should enter early at www.sportsentrysolutions.com/allraces.php to make sure of a place.

The race will take place on Sunday, May 12, and Hall Construction Group will sponsor the 10k for the fifth consecutive year.

The extensive prize list includes cash prizes of £200, to be awarded to the first male and the first female to cross the finishing line. An additional £200 will be awarded if a new course record is set.

Chip timing by Sports Timing Solutions will ensure accurate times are recorded and all finishers will receive a quality technical t-shirt supplied by Start Fitness.

Runners should be able to complete the course within 80 minutes due to a police requirement to reopen closed roads as soon as possible.

The 10k will be supported by the B&A Scaffolding 2k fun run. Entry is online only and there will be no entries on the day of the race.

Further information about both races is available from www.beverleyac.com
