The Rotary Club of Rayleigh Mill are pleased to announce that we will be organising the fourth annual Rayleigh 10k cross-country run to take place on Sunday 17th October 2021 with all profits going to Rotary charities.

From this year onwards we are naming the run "The Bill Hughes Memorial 10k", in memory of one of our club's founder members, past Treasurer and also President in 2011-12, who sadly passed away in August. Bill was an enthusiastic supporter of this event and is very much missed by all his friends in Rotary.
The course will follow the same route as for the previous 3 years, starting and finishing at Belchamps Scout Activity Centre and will follow a circular route through Hockley Woods, Grove Woods, Cherry Orchard Park and Gusted Hall Woods, using pathways and bridleways and will be chip timed.

If you are a UK Athletics affiliated athlete please ensure that you enter your UKA Affiliation Number in the box provided to ensure that you pay the correct entry price. When you enter, you will be asked to provide an estimated finish time, which will be used to allocate race numbers and chips.

Race limit: 550 entrants
Time limit: 2 hours
Trophies will be awarded to the first, second and third place finishers for both male and female categories, as well as to the first place male and female veterans. A medal will be presented to all finishers.
Water stations will be at approximately 5km and at the finish. Hot and cold drinks and a selection of hot and cold food will be available to purchase at Belchamps.
