Torbay Athletic Club will be presenting the Torbay Royal Regatta 10k road race on Sunday 20th August 2017 starting at 6.00 pm. The race limit is set at 700 and you will need to enter before the day. No entries on the day. This is a popular event, which has been an inspiration to many since its introduction to the Torbay Royal Regatta in 1976. Can anyone ever break the course record of 30 minutes set by Rob Wise over twenty years ago? The ladies record was broken in 2010. With a time of 34 minutes 12 seconds set by Claire Hallissey from Bristol & West Athletic Club. Awards will be made to the first three ladies and first three men and the first in all 5-year age categories from 15 to 70 dependent on entries. The race will start near the Princess Gardens at 6.00 pm. The flat to undulating course hugs the English Riviera and the runners will race along the Torbay Road to Paignton Green, after two flat and fast clockwise laps of the green they will return over the testing Hollicombe hills to Torquay and finish on Corbyn Head.
