Harrogate Town Centre 10K 2017
After a break of one year to allow the running of the inaugural Great Yorkshire Run in Harrogate, the Town Centre 10K is back and seeks to be the best ever! The GYR brought nearly 3,000 runners to Harrogate and although we can’t accommodate quite so many runners, we’ve upped our race limit to 1,000 in order give the maximum opportunity to those seeking to return. It remains the fastest 10K in the county, the record being set by Matthew Hynes (North Yorkshire Moors A.C.) in 30:45, the ladies record is held by Charlene Thomas (Wakefield Harriers) in 34:48. Starting and finishing in the picturesque Crescent Gardens, the race has a vibrant, cheerful atmosphere and one of the best and fastest finishes around that you really have to experience.
For 2017 Harrogate Harriers and A.C. offer a cash prize of £200 to the winners of both Men’s and Ladies’ races, plus numerous category prizes. There is also an additional £100 on offer to the winning runners in the event one or both of the course records are broken.
Electronic chip timing will be provided by Sports Timing Solutions (STS) and we will also provide a free SMS text message results service.
The 2017 race will be in support of the Harrogate Community Track initiative, this is an ambitious project to bring a state-of-the-art running track to Harrogate and Harrogate Harriers have teamed with Ashville College to make this a reality.
