Record number of runners to compete in Wiltshire runPosted on 24th April 2014
The 33rd Corsham St George’s Day 10k is set to have a record number of runners compete, with entries expected to surpass the 1,000 mark.
The run in Corsham, Wiltshire, takes place on Sunday 27th April and will start at Corsham Football Club at 11am.
Last year’s run was hugely popular with runners descending on Corsham from all over the country and helping to raise over £5,000 for charity.
Race organisers are again expecting the race to be hugely successful, with thousands of spectators staying in new holiday homes in Wiltshire also expected to come and support runners.
Race director, Alex Fogwill, told a local newspaper, “What’s staggering is the number of people who have applied in advance – at the moment we are on 905, and the maximum number we have attracted in the past was 830, so with people arriving on the day we are expecting to pass 1,100 runners.
“We are trying to make it a bit more interesting for spectators. Every year we try to do something extra, and this time we are having six classic cars go round the track before the race starts.”
