This year we are running the TOMMY 10K on the 6th November which is the week before Memorial Sunday. The course is along the beautiful sea front at Seaham on a mixture of paths, promenade and some trail paths. The start & finish will be at the Tommy War Memorial statue of a First World War soldier by artist Ray Lonsdale, displayed close to Seaham war memorial, on Terrace Green by the seafront in Seaham, County Durham.

The COR-TEN® steel statue weighs 1.2 tonnes (1.2 long tons; 1.3 short tons) and is 9 feet 5 inches (2.87 m) tall, with a rusty red patina. It depicts a First World War soldier, wearing boots, puttees, great coat and tin hat, sitting on an ammunition box, with downcast eyes, holding the barrel of his grounded rifle in his right hand. It is officially named 1101 (or Eleven-O-One), referring to the first minute of peace as the armistice came into force at 11am on 11 November 1918, but is more popularly known as Tommy, referring to the archetypal private soldier, Tommy Atkins.

All finishers will get a T-shirt, Medal, snack and a drink. We would love to see you there!
