EAST GRINSTEAD 10K

THE ANDY RIPLEY MEMORIAL RACE

2020 RACE STATUS

We have a provisional date in the diary for the East Grinstead 10k of 27th September 2020. Whether the race goes ahead as usual this year depends on a few factors linked to the current situation that we are all facing:

  • Government and England Athletics guidance regarding events

  • The availability of the race venue and other important services critical to the event

  • Competition from other larger events in the region which may get rescheduled and clash with our event

Once we have a clearer idea of the situation, the race committee will take the decision whether or not to stage the event this year. In the meantime we hope you have been able to enjoy the fantastic weather and get some socially distanced training in - stay safe and well. Please contact secretary@egtri.com if you have any questions.

Welcome to the EG10k race page!

  • Multi-terrain race on a mainly flat course taking in scenic bridle paths around East Grinstead

  • Licenced by and run under the rules of UK Athletics (2020 license no. to be confirmed)

  • All the mod cons: Chip timing, medical service, water station, indoor registration, toilets, parking, on site motivation from Meridian FM and finish line catering by East Grinstead Lions!

  • Medal and t-shirt included in the entry price for all competitors, plus category prizes!

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.
