Tadworth Ten 2017
Sunday 8th January 2017
The Tadworth Ten 2017 will be held on 8th January at 11.30am, starting and finishing at Epsom Racecourse, Epsom Downs, Surrey.
The race is a scenic and challenging 10 mile, 2-lap course comprising 50% road and 50% tracks & grass and is normally supported by around 700+ runners of all abilities. Much of the proceeds of the race go towards assisting local charities.
The course was altered for the 2014 race. This was done to avoid running on the increasingly busy road near Tattenham Corner. It also allows us to use a common start and finish close to the race HQ and thereby make better use of the grandstand’s excellent facilities.
The start and finish is now from the same point close to the 2 furlong post. Following the line of the railings the route takes runners up through the old start on the track in the middle of the downs and cross the racecourse at the top as previously. From here the runners commence the first of 2 laps returning to this point at 5 miles. Most of this lap is the same as in previous years except for a short cut along a footpath into The Avenue rather than running up to the traffic lights near Tadworth Station. As the runners reach Epsom Lane North they turn sharp left across the race course ‘chutes’ and return to the 5 mile point for the start of their second lap. At the end of the second lap the competitors turn down the track across the Downs they ran up earlier thus benefitting from a downhill finish with a good view of the line itself (subject to the weather!)
We have prizes for top 3 male and female finishers, plus generous Vets prizes. And of course a memento for all finishers. There are team prizes for top male and female teams. For UKA club members this will be done by Club. Non-affiliated competitors can choose their own team name and members.
