The race, which is now in its 28th year, is taking place on Sunday 10th April. Runners will be starting from and finishing at the Hospice in Hastingwood, Harlow.
Our 10k is a fantastic event for serious joggers and those who run for fun. The event is open to all abilities. It is ideal for regular running club members looking to boost their training, as well as those who are new to running but looking for a challenge. Wheelchair racers are also welcome and have become an integral part of the event.
A perfect opportunity for a new PB
The race is UK Athletics affiliated and chip-timed – so it offers the perfect opportunity to get a new PB for the 2022 race season. There are also trophies up for grabs in the following categories: male, female, seniors, juniors and wheelchair athletes and every participant will get a medal.
Last year, the St Clare 10k saw around 400 participants raise more than £11,000 for the Hospice – a target which St Clare is hoping to beat this year.
Our Challenges and Events Fundraiser, Dani De’ath, who organises the running event said, “The atmosphere at this race is always great, and that’s because people know that every kilometre they cover, they are raising money for our nurses, doctors and care teams to put life into days of people living with a terminal illness. Entry is £13 for an affiliated racer and £15 for a non-affiliated racer, and many people go that extra mile and raise sponsorship on top. Just £100 could pay for two patients to receive a 90 minute Hospice at Home visit from our nursing assistants. That care makes such a difference to local people and their families.
“We have the race times from our 2021 event on our website, so if you are looking for a time to beat, check them out. “
