Join us for a Bank Holiday memorial race that delights!
This is a Partner race
This means that we are working with a host Partner Organisation and provide timing and/or race management services for their event.
The Ted Pepper 'Seven' was first organised in 1979 as a memorial race to Blackheath runner Ted Pepper, who sadly lost his life whilst taking part in the Three Peaks Race. It continued as a seven mile race for a number of years, with the Club Committee turning down a request to make it 10k - as no one ran 10k on the roads! (those were the days).
However, in 1991 the course was re-measured and adjusted to make it 10k and it has continued as a popular 10k race ever since. In the early years, the race was restricted to club runners only, but nowadays the race is open to runners of all standards, including those new to 10k races.
The 10K route is based around Norman Park in Bromley. It is off road and almost flat. The race starts and finishes on track. There will be marshals, kilometre/mile markers and water stations at the 2m/4.25m and start/finish.
On-the-day Entry Fees (subject to availability only):
10K race: £21.00
Event information will be sent to all registered entrants prior to race-day.
