Why you should come and run the Chew Valley 10k

WITH the Bath half marathon falling victim to the weather the organiser of the Chew Valley 10k has appealed to frustrated runners to come and give the event a try on Sunday June 10th.

“Even though the Chew Valley 10k is shorter it’s got a pretty big hill half way round!” said organiser Emma Robinson.

“It is a small but popular rural 10k which is building a big name for itself amongst runners in the region.

“Now into its 6th year of running, this friendly, community event offer a scenic yet challenging 10k, and attracts beginners and seasoned runners, many of whom return year after year.

“Every year has been a sell-out, and last year 800 runners entered the race, which was started by Bath-based Olympic Pentathlete Heather Fell (pictured).

“It raises a lot of money for South West charities, this year supporting NICU Support (delivering breast milk to premature babies in neonatal units in RUH, Southmead & other hospitals) and St Peter’s Hospice SW, (supporting the Room to Care appeal), plus local schools.”
