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 2021 race sees the same course as has been used for the last six years - off-road and based around Norman Park, Bromley.
The race features an impressive track start and finish and there will be a children's fun run taking place shortly after the main race starts at 10:10.
The race is organised by Blackheath & Bromley AC - a club with a long and proud history, having been formed in 1869, and having been home to a number of notable athletes, incuding Britain's fastest ever sprinter, Dina Asher-Smith.
Nice Work will be providing Chip timing services for the event.
