2018 data. The page will be updated soon.

 

UPDATE - 29 OCTOBER 2018

 

TRANSFER OF PLACES

 

We have now reached the cut-off date for transfers and the race database has been finalised.

We would ask that no one attempts to run under someone else's name as it will corrupt the race results, spoil the event for others and would lead to disqualification under England Athletics' rules.

 

Good Luck on Sunday!

 

 

 

UPDATE - 23 OCTOBER 2018

 

This is a final reminder before the 10k.  The race takes place on Sunday 4th November, the start is 9.45am and the race start line and HQ is based at West Billericay Community Association Limited, Hannakins Farm, Rosebay Avenue, Billericay, CM12 0SY.

 

On the morning of the race this area of Billericay is extremely busy and parking is very tight with 750 runners, therefore we encourage you to get to the event early to avoid any stress, particularly if this is your first event and to car share where possible. We always have one or two runners turning up late so please don’t let it be you. The main hall in the centre is open from 8.00am where you can gather in the warm and refreshments will be available with all proceeds going to our chosen charity.

 

We are again this year offering alternative parking away from Hannakins and Rosebay Avenue at Lake Meadows Business Park, Woodbrook Crescent, off Radford Way CM12 0EQ, (next to the Sainsbury’s Local). This will entail a downhill walk to race HQ of just under 1 mile. The parking will be signposted and marshalled, a map is shown under 'Car Parking'  to direct you to Race HQ and the start.

 

Following feedback from last year’s race we have instigated a bag drop storage facility this year, it’s on a first come first served basis with one bag per runner. Your race number will have a pull off tag which you can secure to your bag for identification purposes. All bags are left at your own risk. You will need your race number to collect your bag at the end of the event.

 

Race packs are collected on the day, including running numbers and race chips, between 8.00-9.15am – again please leave time to sort this out as there often are queues at the desks as race time approaches. Race chips need to be fastened to your shoe laces, there are diagrams around the HQ to show how this is done and marshals to assist.

 

We all need to go to the toilet just before the race, so please leave time for this as well –ample toilets are provided inside the Centre, please don’t ‘go’ where you are not supposed to ‘go’.

 

Please remember that for everybody’s safety, headphones are strictly prohibited.

 

Runners World in Chelmsford have confirmed, as last year, they are giving 20% off non-sale items for a limited period in store on production of race number following the event.

 

We are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and embrace sustainability. As such we have introduced biodegradable cups at the mid-way water stop plus compostable cups that are suitable for hot drinks in the hall. We would also ask all attending to support us by placing the plastic water bottles that we distribute at the end of the race in the clearly labelled recycling bins at the finish and in the hall.

 

We are also trailing this year a live web feed of the finish line on our Facebook page, IT permitting! So, if you have family and friends who cannot make the event to support you, they may like to log onto our FB page and watch you cross the line.

 

Our Facebook page will also be used if we have any last-minute information to pass across or you need to contact the organisers directly. 

 

We are pleased to have with us on site Anglian Community Enterprise, who will be offering a variety of free NHS health checks to eligible patients aged 40-74 who have not had a health check in the last 5 years.  Please feel free to pay them a visit.

 

Finally, we have an on-course photographer who’s pictures will be free to download after the event from the below website.

The only last thing to say is good luck on the day and we hope you enjoy the event.

 

Billericay Striders 10k

 

 

UPDATE - 29 SEPTEMBER 2018

 

Thank you to all those who have entered the race.  The limit of 750 has now been reached and the race is now Full.   We look forward to staging another well organised event - whether you are a first timer or an elite athlete.  Keep up to date via this web site or our 10k facebook page.  Best wishes.  RACE ORGANISERS

 

UPDATE - 26 SEPTEMBER 2018

 

There now are only 30 places left til we reach the limit of 750.  Please be advised there will strictly be no entries on the day.   If you know someone who intends to enter, please let them know soonest.

 

ENTRIES

 

Thanks to all those who have already entered the race. We are now about two thirds full. This is an incredible response for which we thank all our loyal supporters who come back year after year.  With only approx. 250 places remaining, and just two months to race day, please remind your fellow club runners and friends to sign up as soon as possible. It is a race organisers’ nightmare to have to turn away late-comers away once the race is full. This happens every year – so make sure it’s not YOU!

 

WINNERS TROPHY

 

We have introduced a perpetual trophy for the male and female winners. This trophy is kindly funded by our sponsor Ground Control. Each year the name of the male and female winner will be engraved on this prestigious trophy which will be displayed in the hall on race day.   We will be keeping the trophy, but the winners will get £50 each – and an extra £100 if they break the course record. All runners will be presented with a race souvenir and a mars bar at the finish line.

FREE PHOTOS !   A photographer will be present on the course and will endeavour to take a photograph of each runner as they pass.  These will be available for free download, via link on our web site, within 24 hours of the finish of the race.

 

 

BAG DROP.  We will be trialling a secure bag drop facility this year.  This will be on a first come, first served basis - only one bag accepted per runner.

 

 

LIVE STREAMING.  We will also be providing live streaming of the finish line to our Facebook page.  This is to be confirmed subject to technicalities.

 

 

RECYCLING.  We will be providing recycling bins for plastic water bottles at race headquarters and at the finish area.  Biodegradable cups will be used at the water station and compostable cups will be used for refreshments at race HQ.

 

 

TAKING YOUR COMMENTS ON BOARD - CHIP TO CHIP TIMING.

 

We do take your feedback seriously and have explored all possibilities to enable chip to chip timing.  Unfortunately, this is not possible for several reasons and therefore we will continue with gun to chip timing only.
