Working Locally/ Sittingbourne 10K Race
<b><i>Registrations now open for our 10th annual 10K Race in Sittingbourne</i></b>
Cancelled due to Covid-19
Following the most recent official government recommendations regarding COVID-19, we regret to inform you that the Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race has now been cancelled.
We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment, but ultimately we all want to protect the health and safety of our runners and race stewards, and we believe this is the correct decision to make.
Refunds will be made to all those already entered, although please be aware that most of these are handled by third parties and may take a little time to materialise.
We look forward to welcoming you again next year on 16th May 2021.
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.
Our 10th Sittingbourne Invicta 10K Race is on Sunday 17th May 2020.
All runners start from the Westlands School playing fields at 11.00am.
To secure a place in the 10K race you can;
- register NOW and pay online through the Run Britain website or Eventbrite website

The closing date for all pre-registration entries is Friday 8th May 2020.
You can still enter on the day between 08.30am and 10:30am.
This race is approved by UK Athletics (Licence No 2020 39124) and pre-registration is now open.
The route follows rural roads through the delightful undulating Kent countryside. The race starts on the school playing field and then follows country roads along a measured route before returning to the school. There's just one short stretch of off-road running where some caution is required
Each runner completing the race will receive an event medal and a "goody bag". There will also be trophies for male/female winners.

We will also be holding a Sittingbourne Invicta 2K Race on the same day.
A pre-registration fee of £14 for affiliated runners and £16 for non-affiliated runners of the 10K race must accompany each entry form. Race numbers will be issued on the day so no SAE required.
The on-the-day registration fee will be £16 for affiliated runners and £18 for non-affiliated runners.
This is a community event and 2019 funds raised went to Young Lives Foundation and Invicta’s Community Chest fund providing awards grants to support work of community groups in and around Sittingbourne.
To date, our 10K races have raised just under £50,000 for various local charities.
Vehicular access and free parking will be via Westlands Avenue, Sittingbourne, ME10 1PF (just off the A2 - see Map).
