ENTRIES are being invited for a new 10k race in Chester in August.
The inaugural Chester Academy 10k and Family Run was due to take place in April but had to be postponed as the course at Chester Racecourse was waterlogged.
The new date for the event is Sunday, August 12.
Both the main race and the fun run will take place within the confines of the spectator-friendly racecourse, meaning friends and family can watch the competitors every step of the way.
It will be the first time an official 10k race has taken place entirely within the confines of the Roodee.
Race organiser Keith Hancock said: “We are looking for the people of Chester to embrace the race and make it their own.”
On the day of the race, there will be plenty of activities for children. The Chester Academy, the multi-sports organisation behind the event, will also be laying on taster sessions in fencing and tri-golf, a ‘mini’ version of the sport for youngsters.
The race offers free on-site parking, shower, changing and toilet facilities. There is also prize money on offer for the top three men and women finishers in the 10k.
Each finisher will get an official race medal, along with a goody bag.
Online entry forms can be downloaded from the Chester Academy website www.chesteracademy.co.uk.
