Southend 2019 10K and 3K Race Entries are now open

Race date: 6th October 2019

We are pleased to announce this years 10K race is part of the Essex Championship


The Southend 10K is the one of the largest and long standing 10K road races in the area and certainly 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 35th running of the event which benefits from a well supported seafront course and has often been blessed with favourable weather conditions for runners and supporters alike. To celebrate, this year, every finisher will receive a quality bespoke medal and technical t-shirt.

I have been a member of Southend AC for over 10 years and this year will be my fifth as race director.  Over the last few years, we made a number of significant changes to the event, 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 for our event.  The course itself has remained largely unchanged and three years ago were pleased to be able to reintroduced the children’s 3K race.

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 on Sunday 6th October.

Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you at this year’s event.
