Hendy Eastleigh 10k 2020 – the home of the PB – has now been rescheduled for Sunday 1st August 2021
Following the Government’s recent announcement to extend the lockdown easing by another month we have now received advice from local authorities and UK Athletics.
UK Athletics have informed us that they would be unable to issue a license for our event during this month period so we are left with no other option than to reschedule the event.
So we are pleased to announce that, with fantastic support from our suppliers, Eastleigh Running Club and local community groups, we have rescheduled the event for Sunday 1 August at 9am.
The event is renowned as a fast, flat course and as the ‘home of the PB’ is an ideal opportunity to record personal and seasons best times. We were delighted to be named in Runners World top ten 10k races in 2019.
Our great sponsors Hendy are supporting the event for the fifth year and runners will pour into Eastleigh from throughout the UK and abroad and compete for nearly £3000 worth of prizes in the race that will be held around the streets of Eastleigh.
Hendy Eastleigh dealership is again proudly sponsoring the Eastleigh 10k which celebrates its 36th anniversary in March 2020 and Hendy Group Managing Director Paul Hendy said he was delighted to continue 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 will now start and finish within sight of our new Leigh Road showrooms fits perfectly in our plans,’’ said Paul.
