Hendy Eastleigh 10k Road Race 19 March 2017
The south of England’s largest 10k road race, home of the PB, opens !!
Hendy Eastleigh dealership is again proudly sponsoring the Eastleigh 10k which celebrates its 33rd anniversary in March 2017 and Hendy Group managing director Paul Hendy said he was delighted to join forces with one of the most well established running events in the region.
“As a group we are involved in a wide range of events and activities and the Eastleigh 10k, which starts and finishes within sight of our Leigh Road dealership, fits perfectly in our plans,’’ said Paul.
The event takes place on Sunday 19 March 2017 and is once again set to attract around 2,800 runners – making it the largest 10k in the south.
In 2016 the event lived up to its reputation as being the ‘home of the PB’ as hundreds of runners recorded a PB time on this fast, flat course and the Womens winning time set by Laura Whittle of 32.36 is the fastest women’s 10k in the country in 2016.
This year all runners will again receive a commemorative medal and a technical T shirt. There will again be new prize categories for up to 70+ age groups together with a 15-16 year age category.
