Step Up 4 Good 2019 is going to be a little different….. Now in its fourth year, sees a complete transformation of venue, taking our annual Autumn race from the dramatic terrain of Greenham Common, to the state-of-the-art Newbury Racecourse, Sunday 13th October.
Our popular event consists of three distances. Starting with the Family-Mile/Para-Mile, 3K Fun Run and the main 10K race. Parents can run for free to support their younger children or opt for the adult 3K entry option (free adult entry does not inc medal etc).
*New for 2019* We are offering children under the age of 15 with a disability or impairment the opportunity to run/jog/walk a mile for free (with their parent/carer) and it’s free to enter! Our popular 3K Fun Run is back by demand this year and is open to both adults and older children. There is plenty of space to watch your little ones run by and cheer them along from the comfort of the undercover Grandstand.
The big 10K race is a scenic single loop on road and hard packed paths, in and around the perimeter of the racecourse. The course is quick, flat and ideal for PB’s. Run under UK Athletics rules, it is a new fast race for competitive club athletes and aspiring runners looking for a scenic and friendly all-inclusive event. The route is marked in kilometres, with a water station at the half way point. Try our interactive map on our website to see the route in more detail. Every paid entry receives a personalised bib, chip-timing, a Finisher tech t-Shirt and medal.
