A chance for some running tourism

Come and join us on Sunday, 8th July 2018 for a 10K chip-timed race, taking runners on a sightseeing tour of Gloucester, including the cathedral, quays, canal and docks.

The 2018 Gloucester 10K race

With a predominantly flat route, for most runners this is a potential PB course. The race finishes in Gloucester Park.

Welcome to the Gloucester 10K

A chance for some running tourism. You can visit Gloucester Cathedral, Gloucester Docks, Gloucester Quays and even improve your fitness whilst doing so. The race starts at 9am on Sunday 8th July 2018. The event finishes in Gloucester Park. The course is designed with sight seeing in mind and therefore has the odd twist and turn. However, it is predominantly flat and for most runners this is a potential PB course.

Entries open for the 2018 race at 6pm on the 1st February


We are pleased to announce that EG Carter will continue the main sponsor for the 2018 race.


We would also like to thank Creed Foodservice for their support of the 10K by supplying the water and fruit for the runners, Gloucester sports for supporting the event, and SK Heating and Cooling for their assistance with the prizes.

We would also offer a special thank you to Hucclecote Harriers and Kingsway Runners for their massive support for this event. 

Rumour has it that Gloucester Sports has been so impressed by their support that a prize has been offered to the club with the most finishers!
