About The 13th Rye Summer Classic Series 10K Race Two - August

The Rye Summer Classic Series is a popular series of three Friday evening events and in 2018 returns for the 13th year. Featuring two 10k races and a season-ending final 5k. The race taking place on Friday, 3rd August is a fast and flat 10k.

The route is a traffic free road, out and back course through the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. The course is accurately measured, fast and flat and, if the weather is fine, a perfect opportunity for a PB.

Suitable for experienced runners and beginners alike, the event also includes a Children's Race.

The Course
This accurately-measured course is a fast and flat, out and back route along the paved paths of the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. When conditions are favourable, it can make for some fast times - but, be prepared, it can be windy!

First Aid
St John Ambulance or an alternative medical provider will be in attendance on the day and the course will be marshalled to provide assistance. There will also be a sweep marshal following the race to ensure that nobody is left behind and that all runners are accounted for.

Race HQ: Rye Harbour Sailing Club, The Point, Rye Harbour, Rye TN31 7TU

The Race Headquarters will be at Rye Harbour Sailing Club. There is on site parking for Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, which will be well signposted as you come into Rye Harbour Village. Please take note of any local parking charges that may be applicable.
