Field of 625 to tackle Totnes 10k alongside River Dart

Torbay Weekly

Organisers of Sunday's Totnes 10K race will be hoping to push proceeds past the £25,000-mark since the event was first held in 2000.

The race, combined with a one- mile kids' fun run, has raised more than £22,000 for Totnes Caring so far.

Borough Park, with the leisure centre as headquarters, will be the colourful scene of the start/finish on August 1 as a maximum field of 625 tackle the popular course which runs mostly alongside the River Dart.

There are prizes for the top finishers in all the kids' and 10K age-groups, plus medals for all 10K finishers, and £50 for anyone who breaks either the men's or ladies' course records and £25 if the veteran record goes.

Amenities include a bag store, free race photos, bar and barbecue.

The kids' run starts at 10.25am, with the 10K race off at 11am.

Entry costs £2.50 in advance (online via the Teignbridge Trotters website) or £3.50 on the day, and the event has been sold out in the last three years.
