The date for the 2013 Adnams Southwold 10K run is Sunday 24th November – start time is 11am.
The results are now available on Race Timing Systems website.
We’re a week later than last year due to high tides forecast on the usual date. The tides threatened to create a more ‘challenging’ experience for our runners, and one that we’re sure no-one signed up for! This does mean that unfortunately the race clashes with the Norwich half-marathon.

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 set to become a permanent fixture on the Adnams ‘to do’ list. A few of us here are ‘runners’ and thought it would be a great idea to organise an event on our home turf. 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 and other goodies, with M&S Percy Pigs becoming a firm favourite with our runners. 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 2 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!).
