Rotary Great Western 10K Run

2016 Now Open For Entries












The sixth Rotary Great Western 10K Run will take place on a Sunday morning, 6th March 2016.

The 2016 Rotary Great Western 10K Run will once again be a challenge to even the best athletes. This iconic course has established itself as one of the toughest 10K runs in the region. It is also one of the most scenic with wonderful views of the Dorset countryside.

With changes of terrain varying from country roads to tracks and footpaths the course winds its way through farmyards, woods, orchards and fields. The dramatic climbs and downhill sections make the course a worthy challenge to runners of all abilities.

Dorset Lettings are the main sponsors of the event. Already the sponsors of the Wimborne 10 mile Road Race they still have events at each end of the county and at each end of the year.

The Rotary Great Western 10K Run is jointly run and organised by the Rotary Club of Sherborne Castles and the Yeovil Town Road Running Club.

The Rotary Great Western 10K Run starts at 11.00 am. A separate 2K Fun Run will take place at 10.30am before the start of the 10K Run.

Entry for the Rotary Great Western 10K Run can be made online, by post or on the day. All entries for the 2K Fun Run are made on the day.

Charity entries are welcome. Rotary Charity Fundraisers offer FREE* entry to the event and a Fundraiser Pack to all entrants who wish to raise funds for their special charity or good cause. Fuller information and details are set out under Rotary Charity Entries.
