The 13th Romney Marsh 10K

Location: St Martin's Field, Fairfield Road, New Romney, Kent
Date: Sunday 24th July 2022
Time: 10:30

This popular 10k race returns for the twelfth time and, as usual, is organised by Nice Work on behalf of the Romney Marsh Rotary Club.

The race, which includes a Wheelchair 10k race and Children's race, is now firmly established as a 'must do' race on the local running calendar and the event always gets great feedback.

The course uses the flat tarmac country lanes around the pretty Kent town of New Romney and because it is pancake flat, its perfect for those looking to establish PB's - but the race isn't just for speedy runners. The race is great for runners of all abilities, from seasoned athletes to beginners, with those new to running made particularly welcome. 

The race is held under UK Athletic Rules and also carries a certificate of course accuracy.

The race carries a £50 cash prize for the first man and first lady plus there are awards and prizes for leading runners - all finishers will receive a medal.

Entry Limit: 350
