Bognor 10k 2013

Information and registration

19 May 2013


The Bognor Prom 10K Road Race has been staged every year since 1995, and attracts serious club runners from all over the South of England, as well as individuals and families with no club allegiance. All are equally welcome. It is a major event for Bognor Regis, a day of challenge and personal achievement for runners and a spectacle for the public who line the route.

The 10K race would not be possible without the help of our many sponsors and helpers. Many are acknowledged below, but particular thanks are due to the Bognor Regis Observer, which has been closely involved with the event since the early days, we would also like to thank Express Printing andMatthews Hanton both of whom have help and sponsored the Bognor Prom 10K Road Race for some years. Without the support and assistance of our sponsors it would not be possible to run the 10K race in it's community and family friendly format, nor at the current price - which has not changed for the last four years. So a big Thank you to the main sponsors for their support. We are delighted to welcomeL'Arche as charity partner for 2013 and we hope that the run will raise significant sums of money for this charity as well as other good causes close to the hearts of our runners. At it's discretion The Rotary Club of Bognor Hotham may increase monies raised by the runners, through it's top up scheme - full details supplied with race packs. The Club has given away thousands of pounds to charities and good causes from funds raised from this event.

The organizers offer regular training sessions through Road Runners, a small but keen group of runners who meet every Thursday at 7pm at West Park, Bognor Regis. Anyone wishing to join them will be welcome, regardless of ability, just turn up.

The Rotary Club of Bognor Hotham and the Club of Bognor are part of the worldwide organization known as Rotary International. This worldwide fellowship unites men and women in the ideal of service. Both clubs provide most of the 85 marshals needed to manage the road race. Internationally, Rotary has been responsible for raising millions of pounds for such projects as eliminating olio throughout the world, and responding to major emergencies.

The Bognor Prom 10K is a major part of the Rotary Club of Bognor Hotham's annual program of community service and fund-raising

Information for Runners

This is a flat, high-speed course, awarded Silver grading by BARR. It starts by West Park in Aldwick (with extensive free car parking for competitors), follows the Bognor Regis Esplanade, continues through Felpham and returns along the sea front to finish in West Park. Height undulation is less than two metres; water is available at 5.5K and at the finish. A rolling road closure operates where public highways are used. The course is marshaled throughout, allowing for a maximum race time limit of 90 minutes. All finishers will receive a commemorative medal - to be worn with pride!

Toilets are available, but there are no changing or bag storage facilities. The course is regrettably unsuitable for wheelchairs and competitors are not allowed to run with dogs or be accompanied by cyclists or other wheeled carriages. If you run wearing head phones please ensure volume is low enough so that you can hear what is occurring around you.

Chip timing is an established feature of the race. It relies on all competitors bringing their supplied chip with them. Remember- No chip, No time. Chips are now disposable - so no need to return them at the end of the race. Every competitor who provides a valid mobile phone number will receive a SMS text of their finishing time. Full results will be posted on:

and in the Bognor Regis Observer.

Entries will be processed in strict order of receipt, but no entries will be accepted on the day. You can now enter on line - just click Entries tab of this web site. Race packs will not be sent out until March, for postal entries please check your bank account for initial confirmation that your entry has been accepted. For online entries an e mail confirmation will be sent at time of entry. Packs will include full information, a map of the course, directions to the car park, the official sponsorship form, your chip and your race number.
