Sandridge 10k & Family Fun Run
Following a highly successful event last year, the Sandridge 10k and family fun run is back for 2021!
Taking on a ‘COVID proof’ new look, the event will see runners starting and finishing in the village to complete a GPS tracked audio guided route through the beautiful countryside surrounding Sandridge.
In line with government guidelines on race day*, runners will be required to sign up to allocated staggered start times ahead of the event. Medals will be awarded on completion.
NB - If we are under a local or national lockdown, the event will revert to being entirely virtual as per 2020.
Our virtual event uses ROYO - run a real life course designed by the Sandridge 10k team with GPS tracking and personalised audio guidance.
Close to event day you will be sent an access code where you can log into the app and run at whichever time on that day you like.
The 10k route is a TRAIL run – predominantly off road on paths and woodland terrain. Please be aware of trip hazards and uneven footing.
This is a ‘live’ route and given the nature of the event, runners may encounter walkers, cyclists, horse riders and other members of the public. Please respect social distancing and be aware you may be required to give way. The Sandridge10k is a scenic rather than PB course!
There will be limited physical route markings out on race day, course guidance will come via the audio guided GPS app (ROYO – downloadable from your app store) for which you will be given sign up details prior to the event. You will need to have the app running throughout your race.
Marshals will be stationed at points where trail intersects with road. All runners need to be aware there may be live traffic and should engage road safety sense at all times.
