Bridgwater Bolt 10k 2019

Dates: 12th May 2019, 10:00am - 12:00pm

Category: 1610 Race Series



The Bridgwater Bolt kicks off our 10k Race Series for 2019 and will be our biggest event yet!

This is a predominantly flat route with a nice mix of urban and country scenery - just a couple of hills to contend with. After selling out again last year we have increased the number of entries. We expect entries to sell out before the event date, as per the past few years. 

The course profile is mainly flat with just 2 hills, so if you are looking for a beginner friendly 10k, this is the place to be. Beautiful views of the Quantock Hills and Somerset Levels add to the attraction of this exciting race.

Runners of all abilities are welcome at the event which is now in its 8th year and starts at 10.00am at Trinity Sports & Leisure, where you will have use of the changing rooms, showers, toilets, swimming pool and cafe.
