Challenge 3: 7 Days a Runner

Evesham 10k photographer-extraordinnaire, Charmaine Mitchell, has been a dedicated supporter of our event, taking pictures of happy (and not so happy) runners. What you might not know is that she’s also a dedicated runner; a very dedicated runner.

Charmaine has now completed over 1,000 consecutive days of running! Every single day, come rain, shine, sleet or snow, she has headed out to run at least a couple of miles.

Our challenge to you is to try that for just the next seven days. Starting on Monday 20th, finishing on Sunday 26th July, we want you to run at least 1km each day.

Please only do this if you are fit enough, and don’t have any niggling injuries.

Keep us updated with how you’re getting on by sharing your photos and runs on Strava and in our Facebook group.

Happy running!

Challenge 2: 31:58

Our intrepid runners notched up an impressive 3,611.38km in the first week of the July 10,000km challenge. Keep up the great work!

The 2019 Evesham Town 10k was won by Tom Bains in a fantastic time of 31:58.

Our challenge is simple: How far can you run in that time?

Start your watch and run as far as you can in 31:58, then submit your time below.

Add your name and distance below, as well as your best 5k time in the past twelve months. We will announce an overall winner (whoever ran the furthest) and an adjusted winner based on the 5k time.

Challenge 1: ‘Water’ Great 10k

During our 10,000km July challenge we’ll be asking you to do some mini-challenges. Some are simply fun, some might be a bit more, well, challenging.

The Evesham Town 10k water station provides welcome relief to runners as they pass by the beautiful Hampton Ferry twice during the route.

The first challenge is a simple one. Run 10k this weekend, but make it water themed in the most imaginative way you can and add a photo as a reply to our Facebook post or on your run in our Strava club.

Please do not do anything risky or dangerous around water!

There is some rain forecast, so you could just go for your wettest run ever, find the most beautiful lake or river you know, have part of the run around your garden while someone sprays a hose at you, set up your own fancy water station … whatever you can think of.

If you want to be hyper-accurate, our water stations are placed at 3.6km and 6.9km from the start.

Don’t forget, if you don’t use Strava you can submit your run here to be added to our total.
