2017 Entries Are Open!
Entries are now open for the 2017 Hook Fun Run & Road Race, taking place on Sunday 21st May.
We made a lot of changes to the event last year and they worked, so for 2017 we have decided to keep all three courses the same as they were in 2016. The new 10K we introduced last year was an instant success and proved particularly popular. Remember that the courses for 10 Miles and 10K take in the great rural scenery of Rotherwick and Newnham.
The 2.5 Mile course is the same as last year with the addition of an extra lap around the field at the start. But to make things simpler we have decided to have a single mass start for 2.5 Miles so there is just one event to enter for the shorter distance.
The start and finish of the event will again be in Hartletts Park in the middle of Hook.
The Hook 10K team challenge returns for 2017. This year there will be separate prizes for running clubs and other groups. Why not get talking to your colleagues or friends about entering as a group and going for glory?

We are delighted to announce that Martin & Co, Estate Agents, have taken over as the headline sponsor for the event. We are also pleased that William Grant & Sons have agreed to stay involved and will now be specifically sponsoring the 10K race.
