2018 Entries Are Open!

Entries are now open for the 2018 Hook Fun Run & Road Races, taking place on Sunday 20th May.

We’re delighted to welcome William Grant & Sons, as the sponsor of the William Grant 10K race again this year, their 7th year in succession supporting the Hook Fun Run and Road Races.

We’re also delighted to welcome first time sponsors, local physiotherapy and sports massage experts Square One who will be sponsoring the Square One Hook Fun Run and local premium house builder Cala Homes will be sponsoring the Cala Homes Hook 10 Mile Road Race.

The courses remain the same as last year with all three races starting and finishing at our new home in Hartletts Park where we are expecting the usual HSPA barbeque, stands by our friends and sponsors along with plenty of space for crowds to support the runners. The Cala Homes 10 mile and William Grant Hook 10k routes take runners out through Rotherwick and Newnham, before returning into the centre of Hook.

The Square One Hook Fun Run course takes an approximately 2.25 mile clockwise route down Griffin Way South, under the railway bridge, right to Station Road, past the railway station to the Village centre before returning to the finish in Hartletts Park along London Road.

Team Challenge:

There will be two team challenge events in the William Grant Hook 10K, one for running clubs and one for work-based teams or groups of friends. Teams must have a minimum of 6 members but no maximum. For teams to score there must be a minimum of two male and two female finishers.

There will be refreshments and children’s entertainment as well as sports massage services for tired legs on Hartletts Park so bring the family and enjoy the day.
