    • ****Following a meeting with our T10 Traffic Management Team, it has been brought to our attention that in the event of participants choosing to walk the race, highway and participant safety becomes significantly compromised due to the resulting fragmentation of the race field. We do not currently have a cut off period, your safety and that of highway users, which is of paramount importance to us, will be judged at the Race Directors discretion. Enjoy your Race!****

    The Norman Smith Trophy is awarded to the 1st unattached finisher in the YO7 postcode area.

    Plant a tree

    £5 of your entry fee will go towards plant a tree, with the aim that we will plant at least 1 acre of woodland as part of Thirsk 10. It will be matched by funding from Trees for Climate which will pay for the maintenance of that tree for the next 15 years.


    About Thirsk 10

    About the Thirsk 10

    The Thirsk 10 has been run for over 30 years and in the early days it was run from Northallerton to Thirsk. However with the passage of time and the increase in road traffic the route had to be changed. For many years the route went through Sowerby and then out into the country, but some years ago the route had to be changed again because of the problems with closing the roads around town and the resulting traffic congestion.

    We now have a fast flat course which lends its self to a fast time and gives all abilities a chance of achieving a PB. It is a wheel chair friendly route and such competitors are started 10 minutes ahead of the main field. In recent years the Club has hosted the North of England 10 mile Championship, Yorkshire Veterans Championships and the North Yorkshire Championships.
