Entry Date Announced for the 2019 Woodbridge 10k

The Woodbridge Shufflers are pleased to announce that the highly popular Woodbridge Round-the-Town Charity races will this year take place on Sunday 19th 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 and entries will open on Saturday 9th 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 2018 a record-breaking amount of £12,000 was raised and distributed to five charities. This year six charities will benefit from the race and they are:

  • East Anglian Air Ambulance
  • Fresh Start New Beginnings
  • Just42
  • Lapwing Education
  • MIND
  • Suffolk Accident Rescue Service

Provisional 2018 Woodbridge 10k and Junior Race Results

Thank you to all that run in today’s Woodbridge 10k and Junior races and all that helped out with the organisation and marshalling of this year’s event. As always it was a great atmosphere in the town and this really helps the runners get round the course. Donations totalling £12,000 were made to five charities and many thanks to all our sponsors that helped us to make our largest donation from a race in its 37 year history.

The final results will be published later in the week, but provisional results are now out and can be found at the following links:

 

2018 Woodbridge 10k Entries

The Woodbridge 10k is now in its 37th year and has always been a popular in the local racing calendar, but its popularity has grown in recent years to levels that are almost unheard of for a local club 10k race. This year around two thousand separate people visited our website during the time entries opened which is a significant increase on last year.

The race is organised and put-on by a small group of dedicated volunteers who do it in their spare time. We aim to put on a quality race for the benefit of running community whilst also raising money for charity, something that has always been a part of the race since the first Woodbridge 10k. We cannot increase the size of the race any further due to safety limits and the costs of staging any race are ever increasing and we try to keep the entry fee down as much as possible.

It is clear that people have had issues with the entry process this year. We made changes on the entry process based on issues that were encountered last year, but we have had a two-fold increase in people applying for the same number of places and the bulk of these are within the first ten minutes of entries opening. Given the sheer volume of people trying to enter at exactly the same time it will put a strain on any entry system. We will take the learnings from the entry process this year and make further changes for next year.

We have now done the initial processing of the entry list and if you appear on the list here https://www.racesonline.uk/race…/woodbridge10k/entrylist.php then you are in the 2018 race! We still have some final processing to do but we hope to complete it this week and publish an entry list on our website and send an email out to all entrants later this week once this is completed.
