As well as the 10k there are other events in Alresford on race day.
Alresford Pigs Duck Race starts at 12 o’clock and runs throughout the afternoon. They are using the same car park field as we are.
The Broad Street gardens are open from 11 o’clock – these are fantastic gardens tucked away behind the houses in Alresford’s main shopping street.
All of the pubs and cafes will be open as usual – there really is something for everyone, fish and chips, world-class tapas, all the way through to excellent Indian and Thai restaurants.
Here’s this year’s T-shirt design. Huge thanks to Sue Thomas and her team at Thomas Miller who have, once again, taken a few random thoughts and turned them into something special. Alresford colours this year.
Well, it took longer than a week. In consultation with the Hampshire Road Race League committee, we’ve decided to cap this year’s entries at 550. For those of you that don’t know the course, about half of it is ‘out and back’ along a narrow country lane. To avoid the risk of too much congestion in the narrow bits, we’re going to go with the 550 number. If everything works well, then we’ll increase the numbers next year. For those of you that missed out on a place this year, there is an active FaceBook page where people are offering up places that they can’t use. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1980963118872965/
The deadline for swaps will be Thursday 13th June to allow us to update the entry database and assign the right names to the numbers with the timing chips in them.
