It's Back with a Brand New Route
We are excited to announce the return of the Leicester 10K
Previously held at the beautiful Abbey Park, the course saw runners explore the city centre with sights such as the Grand Union Canal, Richard lll Visitor Centre and the Cathedral.
With a brand new decade comes a brand new route for the Leicester 10K. Starting at Jubilee Square, runners will head into the City Centre and onto Granby Street to Victoria Park. The beautiful greenery of the park will then weave through the University of Leicester before looping back and making its way back to Jubilee Square.
This is a stunning route in the heart of the Midlands - don't miss out. Sign up today!

Race number information
Race number Collection
THE LEICESTER 10K IS COLLECTION ONLY.
Further details will be shared nearer to the event.
Using your race number bib
Your timing chip is affixed to your race number, do not attempt to remove or fold the chip. Do not pierce the chip with safety pins.
Wear your chipped bib number on your chest on the outer layer of clothing e.g. if a running jacket is worn, wear your number on top of this. Do not obscure/ cover your bib number + chip with a bum bag/ running belt.
We encourage runners not to position their arms to start/stop a personal timing device on or right in front of the bib whilst running over the timing mats themselves as this impedes the signal. Arms can be positioned slightly away from the body, or the devices can be started/stopped when the runner isn’t on the actual mat.
Race numbers are not interchangeable and entries cannot be assigned, transferred, sold or gifted to any third party. Do not under any circumstances allow anybody else to run with your race number. Amongst other issues, this can create major problems for the medical team should they need to treat unknown runners.
Your bib & timing chip does not need to be collected in after the event and is yours to keep a memento of your race day!

Race numbers cannot be interchangeable and entries cannot be assigned, transferred, sold or gifted to any third party. Do not under any circumstances allow anybody else to run with your race number.
