Welcome to the Buckingham 10k
The Buckingham 10k in 2016 is being organised by the Winslow Warriors running club with the Buckingham Table, after many successful years being run by Buckingham Ladies Circle and Buckingham Table. The run is a beautiful, multi-terrain route, starting in Buckingham Town Centre, taking in Stowe Avenue, Stowe Landscape Gardens and farmland. It's an undulating route - plenty of small ups and downs to challenge the more hardened runner, but not big enough to deter a first timer! The route is marshalled by volunteers and the Scouts provide a fantastic water station up at the Corinthium Arch. This year for the first time we will be providing chip timing (provided by www.onyourmarksevents.org) and we will also be providing a more comprehensive prize list.
The proceeds from the run are donated to charity. The £2,000 proceeds from the 2015 run were shared between Buckingham and Winslow Young carers and the 3rd Buckingham Scouts. We also donate to the National Trust at Stowe for their support of the event. This year one of the charities will be Medical Detection Dogs based in Great horwood, and the others still tbc. We'd love to beat the amazing amount from last year so sign up and join the friendliest, most beautiful 10k there is!
Numbers are limited at 225, and entries will open online shortly. Entries on the day will only be available if the event has not sold out - this will be updated regularly on here nearer the time.
