Yep, we're back!
The 7th edition of the Chew Valley 10k will be on Sunday 9th June 2019 - the bell rings at 9.30am. Race HQ for this year for both our 10k and 1k will again be at Bishop Sutton Football Club, BS39 5XN and same gorgeous, rural route in the beautiful Chew Valley, set in the backdrop of the Mendip Hills and a stones throw from Chew Valley Lake. There is plenty of action for all the family to enjoy, including our 1k Fun Run (entries open in Spring), live music, Chew Valley Rugby Club BBQ, Chew Moos ice-creams, homemade cakes and refreshments and lots of more!
What you get:
- Free special edition CV10k 2019 technical tshirt
- A bespoke event medal for all finishers
- 17 Category Winner Prizes and Team Trophy
- Free download of hi-res photo of you in action (can print up to A4)

As well as the category winners' trophies, the Team Trophy will be back too; to enter you need 5 friends, family members, running clubbers, work colleagues, random people - whatever you like really. Make sure you all enter with the same team name and the fastest 4 times count toward a combined time, which will make you Champions of the World and win a smart trophy for the shelf. Just remember to tick the box on the entry form when asked if you are entering a Team for the Team Cup (and enter the same Team Name.)
This year, we are delighted to support four charities - Chew Valley-based NICU Support, Bishop Sutton School Society, Chew Valley School Society and local charity, A Life For A Cure Ryan Bresnahan's Meningitis Appeal.
The CV10k is an inclusive event - we welcome runners of all ages, shapes and abilities. In fact, we openly encourage those who think that running isn't for them to join us - we won't bite...often!
We will, however, let you into a little secret - there might be a HILL on the course. It's only little, compared to say Mount Everest, but we feel it's best you know. Also, you need to be aware that while the main road is closed for the start and finish, the back, quieter, country roads are open....minimal traffic, but open.
Participants with a disability can contact Denise on email@example.com to discuss any additional requirements or support.
