The Club organises two well established and very popular road races, the Beverley & Walkington 10Ks, both races incorporate a Fun Run.
Beverley 10k 2014
Sun 11th May
10k Closed - Amazing…Sold Out in 6 hours of going live. We were ALL taken by surprise !!
Beverley AC is very sorry if you were unable to enter this year, but it will be appreciated that a hard and fast limit must be imposed on the amount of runners taking part.
We increased the entry level last year and have now decided that the current maximum cannot be exceeded due to health and safety and logistical reasons.
There is no reserve list maintained for the event, although it is recognised that some runners who have entered may not be able to run (e.g. due to injury) on the day.
For this purpose a number transfer system will operate. Detailed instructions will be included in the race number/info packs which will posted out to entrants in mid-April.
So, if you know someone who has entered but cannot run due to an injury or other commitments this system may be an option.
Please Note: As from 1st April 2014 a new UKA Rule “Runners (both) involved in unauthorised number transfers will be disqualified”
Hope you are able to enter our next race at Walkington on Friday 11th July 2014.

Comments received from a Running Club President and Race Organiser
Please pass on my thanks to the organising committee for a great race at the weekend. My first and certainly not last. I had travelled from Wetherby, having promised myself over previous few years to support Beverley, I made it this year.
As a race organiser I am also taking back many ideas and positive elements from your event. Amongst other things.
1. Good quality race literature and advertising
2. Car parking at leisure centre well organised - plenty of keen Marshall’s who knew how to get cars parked swiftly.
3. Plenty of signs in and around leisure centre.
4. Well organised chip distribution arrangements - lots of space.
5. Obvious timely setting up of finish area and barrier placement throughout.
6. Notification to public of best viewing areas on local web sites.
7. Something we find key to success is engaging with local business and community - we do a race booklet sent free to runners and its clear Beverley AC have same strong bond.
8. 2 drink stations. (for the race weary)
8. YVAA - extra interest
9. I guess over 60% unattached, so like us good links/advertising within local area.
10. Great setting for start & finish.
See you again next year - along with a posse of Wetherby Runners AC members.
Once again well done guys, I KNOW of untold hours in building a race to be successful - but there is a world of difference between a good race which just about hangs together and a truly great race event which has vision, pre-empts ‘almost’ all of the scenarios and has all the players pulling together.
Sample of others:-
“Thanks for a brilliant day. Everything was so well organised”
“I loved the event. I usually do off-road lower number events so was pleased that more participants did not have a negative effect. The start was a bit slow but that did not matter with the chip timing. The route was great, a great mix of being cheered through the streets and then open country. Some people on runners world forum think its hilly! - I thought the slight rise and then steady decent towards then end was just perfect.”
