Race Route

The most important thing about Brigg 10k Poppy Race is that you are helping us raise money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal whilst having fun.

 

Brigg 10K Poppy Race is a very flat and fast course with plenty of long straights to reel in the runner in front of you. From the top of the slight rise at Cadney you can see almost a third of the course!

 

The route is a straight forward 5 kilometres out and back along a very quiet country road. The public road ISN'T closed to traffic for the event however there is very little traffic on a Sunday morning.

 

  • The first kilometre of the course runs parallel to the River Ancholme and only has a couple of very slight bends. The road surface is in quite good condition and makes for a fast first and last kilometre.
  • The second kilometre is probably the most difficult of the race with several bends and a poor road surface. There is quite a severe camber and a lots of wear and tear from farm traffic. To minimise the chance of injury please allow enough space from the runner in front to see where your feet will be landing.
  • The third and fourth kilometres are also fast ones with only a couple of bends, run on mostly refurbished road surfacing.
  • The fifth kilometer includes the slight rise to the turnaround point in the village of Cadney.
  • The route then reverses with the finish in the centre of Brigg.

 

There is a water stop just after the 5 kilometre turn round point.

 

The route is well signposted and marshalled.
