Event – The Tamworth 10K – Sunday October 14th 2012
The date agreed with Tamworth Borough Council is Sunday October 14th 2012 for the 2012 Tamworth 10k. We reintroduced the race with a new scenic route in October 2011 to many complimentary comments about how good the new route was. You can now register for this event.
The race will start and finish in the beautiful grounds surrounding Tamworth Castle and will wind its way through the grounds out into the town before following a section along the canal in Fazeley before returning to the Castle Grounds. KP Events have worked closely with Tamworth Borough Council in bringing this race back to the town. Race start time is 10.30am. The start area is near the Pavilion.
