2017 Askern 10km Entries Open

The race is being held on Wednesday 17th May @ 19:00

UPDATE: Race Full. Sorry if you have missed out. We do operate a waiting list for on-line entries via BookItZone. You can sign up and then be emailed if a place becomes available.

We know we have been pretty quiet about the Askern 10km this year. We have faced a number of challenges with the latest curve ball being we may have lost our parking at Race HQ due to building works. We now know this is unlikely to start prior to the race so we have decided to put this race on for one last time in its current guise.

We have also previously reduced the entry limit last year in response to it being overwhelmingly popular in the recent years. We are further limiting the entries again this year to 600 with no on the day but we expect to sell out prior to that.

So please enter early on the following link: https://bookitzone.com/phil_tordoff_1/tb2FFX

Postal entry form here, but please bear in mind how quickly the event is filling up (75% in 3 days) that online is the quickest way to confirm your entry2017 Askern 10km Entry Form (v1)

2017 Norton 9 Number Allocation & Race Day Instructions

Please find links to:

Collect number and returnable chip on the day; HQ open from 08.30 am – race start at 10.00am. Leave plenty of time…

2017 Norton 9 Entries are open!

Race full! (There’s actually two entries left but they’ll be gone a in a few minutes). Sorry if you’ve missed out but BookItZone do operate a waiting list so it may be worth a try. In the next couple of days everyone will receive an email for race day instructions and a copy of the number allocations. Remember start time is 1000 this year and HQ open from 0830.


UPDATE: Forgot to mention there will be NO ENTRIES ON THE DAY and race limit is set at 600. For the past 8 years we’ve had about 510 finishers so the limit of 600 should not be an issue.

A little later than normal but please find on-line entries available in this link: BookItZone

As always, race is first Sunday in March which is the 5th this year – however we have pulled forward the start time by one hour to 10:00 and we have reluctantly but after careful consideration dropped the fun run.

For those who prefer postal entries here is the download: 2017 Norton 9 Entry Form

Chip timing is new for this race (the same system we used for the Askern 10mile) but it will still be number and chip collection on the day. We will publish the number allocation ahead and have info boards available on the day to speed up collection by number blocks.

Look forward to seeing you.

Regards, Phil

2016 Askern 10 Mile Entries List

Thanks for all those who have pre-entered.

As you know we are changing to chip timing this year and it is collect both number and returnable chip on the day. If you entered via post you should have already received confirmation with your number written on, if online shortly you should receive an email confirming.

It’d be most helpful if you ask for your number/chip by number as that’ll help us be speedy – we can do it by name but will require looking up first.

A copy of the pre-entries ordered by Name is here 2016 Askern 10 Mile Pre Entries by Name or ordered by Number here 2016 Askern 10 Mile Pre Entries by Number

Hope the weather is kind Sunday for you…
