Trophies and prizes for the 10k and Half Marathon in 2022 will be based on 'chip to chip times'. This is to ensure all participants are able to distance appropriately at the start. Be aware that the first past the finish line may not be the winner. Results are based on race time not race position. Awards go to:

  • Men and Ladies overall (cash prizes): 1st (£60), 2nd (£40), 3rd (£30). 1st placed man and lady receive specially commissioned bespoke trophy. 2nd and 3rd receive bespoke medal award.
