Organised by local ladies-only running club Sole Sisters, the race starts and finishes at the Jubilee Centre in Savages Wood Road, where there will also be free car parking, showers, toilets and refreshments for runners and spectators.
The race route takes in much of the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve as well as stretches along Brook Way and Bradley Stoke Way.
Open to men and women aged 16 and over, this year’s race will have a time limit of 90 minutes.
The entry limit for this year’s race is 650 and places are reported to be going quickly, with 90 entries being made in the first 24 hours after online applications opened on 26th January.
Entry fees are unchanged from 2015 at £13 (affiliated)/£15 (unaffiliated). Online entries attract an additional administration charge of £1.75.
As in previous years, the race will use ‘chip’ timing and all finishers will receive a technical t-shirt and (new for 2016) a medal.
Sole Sisters have chosen the Bradley Stoke Mayor’s charities as this year’s race charity.
To enter, visit the Sole Sisters website at www.solesistersrc.co.uk or pick up an entry form from the Bradley Stoke Town Council office at the Jubilee Centre, Savages Wood Road.
