Due to Covid-19 restrictions
The Boxted 10k and 5k is going Virtual

Run or Walk any time in June

Entries Now Open

Welcome to the webpage of the Boxted 10k, 5k and 2k Fun Run.

#### Covid 19 Update 15/02/2021 ####

Due to the current difficulties and uncertainties surrounding COVID, we have reluctantly decided to run the Boxted 10k and 5k as a VIRTUAL race this year.
 
Unfortunately, due to health and safety concerns for the children, the Boxted 2k will be cancelled this year. All entrants will receive their 2020 medal in the post, so we encourage you to run the 2k with your children at home.
 
We are sure that you are as disappointed as we are, but even with the anticipated easing of restrictions, we do not feel that a mass sporting event and family occasion like the Boxted 10k can take place in June.
 
The VIRTUAL Boxted 10k and 5k will be open to all who registered and paid to enter the 2020 race.  If you have already paid an entrance fee, there will be nothing further to pay.
 
As we have already purchased all the medals for the original 2020 event, we will be accepting further entries to try and recover some of the losses made so far. Entries will open later this week at Boxted10k.co.uk.
 
We hope that you will participate in the event as the funds we hold from the entry fees will help raise some much-needed funds for our local village primary school, Boxted St Peter’s.
 
With the children working from home for most of a year now, the normal fundraising activities at the school have been put on hold. We are also left with costs from last year and as this event is all non-profit and voluntary led, we are asking as many people to take part as possible to help get back on track and raise some extra money in which has been a very difficult time for all school-aged children. 
 
If you have a real need for your 2020 fee to be returned, then please let us know and we will work with you to reimburse you.
 
The 10k and 5k VIRTUAL races will take place at any time that suits you during the month of June. All entrants who participate will receive the original medal that you would have received in 2020. 
 
We will send out further information on how to submit your race time, and other details in the first week of March. Unless we hear to the contrary by 1st March we will assume that you will be taking part.
 
On behalf of the Boxted Runners and Boxted St. Peter’s School, we sincerely thank you for all your support.
 
All being well we look forward to running together in 2022.

Testimonials

Congratulations Boxted Runners. This was more than a race…a fantastic community occasion. Well done to everyone who played a part.

Top effort for a first time event! Course was great, a really good challenge and plenty to keep the mind active. Good crowd as it weaved back into the playing fields too. Great day and would thoroughly recommend to others, and I will be doing just that!

A well organised challenging event. The run was nothing like many of the other events in this area, which tend to be flat races. This provided a mix of different terrain and tricky climbs. I will definitely be taking part again next year and be encouraging others to do likewise.

A fantastic event, brilliantly organised and with great care taken for the competitors every step of the way. Already looking forward to next year, and hoping to rope in other people next time!

An extremely well organised 10k course. Marshals, music, warm up, sports massages and spectators, all brilliant.

VERY hilly multi terrain course (not a PB), but brilliant strength training course. Definitely back next year.
