On behalf of Southend AC, I would like to welcome you to our new Southend 10K website.
The Southend 10K is the one of the largest and long standing 10K road races in the area and the largest that takes part on a fully road closed course. Having always been staged on the first Sunday in October, we are proud to say that this year will be the 34th running of the event which over the years has benefited from a well supported seafront course and often been blessed with favourable weather conditions for runners and supporters alike.
I have been a member of Southend AC for 10 years and this year will be my third as race director. Having helped at the event for a number of years, I took on the mantle of race director in 2015. In my first few years, we made a number of significant changes, not least the decision to move HQ across to the other side of Lifstan Way and into Southchurch Park East, which I believe has proved to be an ideal new home. The course itself remained largely unchanged. Last year we were pleased to be able to reintroduced the children’s 3K race, which always was part of the event before it sadly had to be withdrawn for a few years due to a lack of interest.
Over the years, the Southend 10K has supported and raised funds for Havens Hospices, a relationship which continues again this year.
I look forward to seeing you at this year’s event.
