Orpington Road Runners are proud to bring you our event around the nature trails of High Elms
The course is challenging and hilly, but very scenic to make up for it. Faster runners should expect to add at least 5 minutes to their PB times, whilst slower runners will be delighted with the value for money of running a 90 minute 10k.
For 2021 we are planning to modify the route of the course, and to change our registration process to make the race safe for all runners and volunteer marshals As these plans are still in development, we cannot detail them here. However, we expect to have registration in advance, to have a staggered start and will not have prizes awarded at the course.
The race is a challenging single lap multi-terrain course through the Nature Trails of High Elms and some of Kent’s beautiful countryside.
Chip & Medals for all
This race is chip timed and results are published. Our special 2020 race medals will be awarded to all finishers of the 2021 race.
Individual & Team Prizes
Prizes will be awarded to the first three men and women to finish and to age group winners. Team prizes are awarded to Athletic Clubs competing with the first three finishers from each club to count. Team members will be taken from the details supplied by runners on the entry website.
The race is open to runners aged 15 years or older.
Orpington Road Runners club member participation
Traditionally we do not allow club members to participate as we require all members to volunteers to be able to host a great 10K event for which we have a brilliant reputation.
