Hendy Eastleigh 10k Road Race 17 June 2018
The new date for the Hendy Eastleigh 10k will be at 9am on Sunday 17 June 2018.
Well the snow has gone and we now have a unique chance to run the event outside of March and hopefully, following a strong spring season, a chance for runners to have a real go at at this fast PB course in better summer weather!!
As you will appreciate its was not easy to just find a date that doesn’t clash with the many local events including the Hampshire Road Race League as we are a league event too. We also needed Places Leisure Eastleigh, our chip timing company and other suppliers to be available. However unlike some races we were determined to re-stage the event and not cancel it for this year!
We know it would be impossible to find a date that is suitable for everyone but hopefully given it is a few months away most runners will be able to make it. And as it’s Father’s Day it will take on extra significance for many who are running or cheering the runners on !!
If you can’t run on the new date :
- We will continue to allow transfers if you know someone who can take your place – there is no charge for this service. We will require you to email the name, dob, email, and any club or medical condition of your replacement.
- We have also provided a waiting list on our Full on Sport page for runners who want to run on the new date to help the transfer process (we have already had enquiries from many runners who missed out on an entry on 18 March about entering the event on the new date )
- If you simply want to cancel your entry -if you return your number to the Running Mania address on your race pack envelope we will provide you with a 25% discount off next year’s race
- At least one of the benefits of the postponement is the Places Leisure Centre car park will also be completed by then – a relief for everyone !!
Thanks to all our runners , our sponsors Hendy, our partners goPhysio and Up & Running and all the local community groups for your support and understanding and we look forward to seeing you all for what hopefully will be a great event in June.

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 34th anniversary in March 2018 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 18 March 2018 and is once again set to attract around 2,800 runners – making it the largest 10k in the south.
In 2017 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.
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.
