Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race

Registrations for our 10th annual 10K Race in Sittingbourne


Our 10th Annual Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race

Our first 10K Run was in March 2011. Its success in drawing both club and social runners from all over Britain has allowed it to become an annual event. Due to the pandemic the race has not been run since 2019.

Our 10th Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race is on Sunday 15th May 2022.

All runners start from the Westlands School playing fields at 11.00am.
