The Florette Fradley 10K is a popular run and attracts around 1,000 entrants each year. Covering flat, country roads, its a great event for beginners and pros alike. The Fradley 10k has previously been nominated in the national Running Awards for the Best 10k Race.

Niki Webster, marketing manager at Florette, comments: “This year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever and ‘Team Florette’ is already looking forward to joining local runners on the start line. We encourage anybody who has ever thought about joining in to enter this feel good event!”

STILL WAITING FOR YOUR RACE NUMBER/CHIP?
If YES than it is possible that our friends at Post Office have decided that the envelopes we use and/or the numbers inside together make the package oversized and you may get one of those ‘please collect your package from the sorting office’ notices and when you collect it they’ll hit you with a £1.06 fee to collect it. We know of one person this has happened to but BEWARE! We have done nothing different, same numbers same envelopes!! If it does happen and you have to pay extra bring proof that you have paid on the day and we will reimburse you!!
