Copythorne (New Forest) 5k/10k Run

The 5k/10k Run will be staged on Monday 10th June 2024 at 19:30. There is a 5km and a 10km run around the village (10km is two laps).  Race number collection will be available from 17:30 to 19:00 on the same evening and in advance at Up & Running in Chandlers Ford and the Copythorne Scout HQ the weekend before the event. Following on from the success of last year there will yet again be real-time chip timing and finisher medals.

There will be a barbecue run by the Explorer Scouts with hot dogs and burgers on sale before, during and after the run and hot drinks from a barista. Our retail partner Up & Running will be there and they have very kindly provided the prizes and race numbers.

Water will be provided on the route by local residents.  At the finish line there will be water available for entrants to refill their own bottles in order to reduce the use of plastic.
