EAST GRINSTEAD 10K
THE ANDY RIPLEY MEMORIAL RACE
2020 RACE CANCELLED
We're sorry to say that there will be no East Grinstead 10k this year. The months of uncertainty around the dates and restrictions for returning to competition, and the wider effects of the lock down, have made it very difficult for our group of volunteers to plan the 2020 event with the confidence that was required. The final factor has been the unavailability of our race venue in September.
It's been a tough decision for the race committee to admit defeat and miss a year, but as everyone has been affected by the current situation to some extent, hopefully you can appreciate this.
We have a provisional date in the calendar for next year, Sunday 26 September 2021, and hopefully we'll be back to some degree of normality by then. Until then, happy training and good luck to those racing later in the season!
As always, please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.

ABOUT OUR RACE
The EG10k is a community event organised “for runners, by runners” with all proceeds going to our charities, East Grinstead Lions and Prostate Cancer UK. It is organised and supported by volunteers from the East Grinstead Triathlon Club and the East Grinstead Athletics Club who will provide friendly encouragement, no matter what the weather.
The race is dedicated to the memory of Andy Ripley OBE, English rugby union international, an active East Grinstead sportsman and former member of both EGAC and EGTC, who died from prostate cancer in 2010.
The event attracts 300-400 competitors and caters for all abilities, from those looking to complete their first 10k to some of the talented athletes in our local clubs such as Oxted Runners, Worth Way Runners and Lingfield RC who may be chasing the 2017 course record of 33:25 minutes.
The first 7km are off-road on well-surfaced bridleways and the final 3km are on residential roads. The route is well marshalled and has a water station at 5km.
