Less than 1 month until the Bexhill Big 10k on Sept 30th.

The 2012 course returns to the planned course from 2011 which was altered due to the work on the new promenade.

the Start / Finish and half way turn stays in Bexhill Highstreet, Dveonshire road with the first half of the race heading out east along teh flat fast promenade, before returning to the high street and completing the 2nd half of the 10k heading west, where you climb the iconic and only hill of the race Galley Hill!

This could be an ideal chance to set a new personal best time!

The new course map can be viewed HERE

Course Amendment

Due to the works on the west part of the course all long De La Warr pavilion being too narrow and pretty ugly to run by, the course will head East to Galley Hill for 2 x 5km out and back.

Down there all day today signing the course, ran it this morning.  Remember to hold a little in reserve so you can really push the downhill of Galley Hill and save any time lost going up it!!

See you tomorrow.

As mentioned before the Big 10k has brought together the best of the routes used over the past few years.  Closed roads and Highstreet Start / Finish and turn point you will give you the importance you all deserve during the race. 

The new 2nd half takes you out East on the promenade overlooking with great sea views and at 8km you tackle the short, sharp climb of Galley Hill.  You then descend fast from the top of Galley Hill and make your way back to finish in Bexhill Highstreet.

Please take a look at the routes Here.

The Big 10k will also include a Corporate Challenge, 4 quickest to count. So all businesses out there get a group of employees together and lets see who is the fittest business in 2011!
