Adnams 10k Run & Virtual Events

Adnams hosts an annual 10k Run in November, in its hometown of Southwold. We’re not sure if it is the wonderful scenery along the route, the cheering crowds, the cool medal, or a swift sip of Ghost Ship from the beer station on the final lap, but something makes the Adnams 10k Run one of the most popular running events in the region. Whatever it is, hundreds of people appear eager to pound the pavements of Southwold on a brisk November morning.

The Course

It is a circular route, involving two-and-a-half laps, starting at The Harbour Inn, and taking in The Common. On the third and final circuit, runners are diverted up Queen’s Road, to the finish line on South Green by The Red Lion pub. The harbour can be challenging with its shingle surface, and there is a bit of an incline on the way to the finish, but a warm welcome and an intriguing goody bag awaits when you cross the line.


The popularity of this event means places fly faster than our runners. It is not ‘Glastonbury tickets’ fast, but you really do have to be ready at your keyboard when registration opens if you want to take part. We recommend signing up to our email updates database below and keeping an eye on our social channels for the latest news. In 2020, we introduced a number of virtual events which enabled you to complete the challenge in your own way. Due to its success, this option was made available again in 2021. Registration fees are £22 per runner or £20 if affiliated.

As well as the value of exercise and a healthy lifestyle, our 10k run benefits many local charities. All profit from the run (after costs) goes to The Adnams Community Trust, which supports organisations within 25 miles of Southwold. Participants also use the event as an opportunity to raise funds for various good causes across the region. Find out more about the work of The Adnams Community Trust here.
