The Woodbridge Shufflers are pleased to announce that the highly popular Woodbridge Round-the-Town Charity races will take place on Sunday 20th May at 12 noon. The races, which follow an undulating course through the streets of Woodbridge, feature a 10k circuit for runners aged 15+ and a 1.5km race for juniors aged 7-15.
The ‘Round the Town’ is a true highlight of the Woodbridge sporting and social calendar, attracting visitors and residents alike to line the streets in support of the runners. This year will follow the same tried-and-tested format as in previous years, with no changes to the course and offering approximately 700 places for seniors and 150 for juniors.
The races are incredibly popular (last year’s 10k sold out in around 45 minutes!) and entries will open on Saturday 3rd March at 12 noon so all those wishing to enter are advised to keep a close eye on the Woodbridge Shufflers website where details of the online entry will be published. Details will also be shared with local online publications and on the Woodbridge Shufflers 10k Facebook page.
The races are proud to raise money for local charities and in 2017, a record-breaking amount was raised, providing nearly £11,000 for three organisations chosen by the family of Andrea McNally, a former Woodbridge Shuffler who died from breast cancer in early 2017.
Details of the sponsors and the charities supported in 2018 will be announced in March.
