New run course at TCR10

Sandown Park presents a new challenge this Feb

A new course for the Saucony 10km at TCR has been designed following the recent bad weather to avoid the Sandown Race Course. The new route will take place on hard surfaces around the Sandown complex, which should help runners achieve some faster times and keep them closer to spectators around the route.
 
Adam Moffat of organisers, One Step Beyond said: “We were asked by the venue to avoid the race course, which is very heavy going after the recent bad weather. They need to get it ready for racing and it was potentially going to be really hard work for runners.
 
“We’ve been down to the venue and designed a new course that we’re very happy with. It should be a faster course now and will see athletes doing 3 loops starting and finishing directly in front of the main grandstand, as well as taking in some behind the scene areas such as the stable areas.”
 
Last year the event was won by Adam Bowden in a fast time of 30:47min and Jenson Button ran a very respectable 38:27.
 
Places are still available through http://www.onestepbeyond.org.uk. Entry includes a weekend pass to the TCR show and a £10 Saucony voucher.
