New for 2016: The Runners Wall
Don’t get too excited, as the samples were mouthful-sized! Our beer station opened after the first lap, which will gave some of our runners something to look forward to after running around in the very windy conditions!
A little bit about how the 10k started
It started as a ‘good idea’ to help us raise funds for a Prince’s Trust Million Makers Challenge in 2009, but the Adnams Southwold 10k seems to have become a permanent fixture on the Adnams’ events calendar. A few of us here are runners and thought it would be a great idea to organise an event in out home town. The date was originally chosen to fit with our Million Makers Challenge, but the cold, wet and windy conditions seemed to suit those who wanted to feel heroic as they crossed the finishing line. So the annual date is set for mid-to-end November. As you’d expect from Adnams, there’s a fantastic goody bag at the end containing a medal, beer for over 18s and other lovely things. Bananas and water are freely available at the finish line, and there’s a couple of loo stops on the way should the need arise!
You can see the route here (it’s a circular route with two and a bit laps with an extra uphill section at the end – but it’s okay as you can see the pub in the distance!).
