Frenchay 10k – Community Running

On 14th April members of Just Run Frenchay participated in the Frenchay 10k race. It is not an easy route as it has plenty of infamous local hills, elements of cross country and frequently coincides with the hottest day of the current year. The number of very red-faced runners confirmed that this was again the case in 2024.
We are really proud of our leader, Jessie, who ran a brilliant race finishing as the second lady and narrowly missing a top 10 place. We also celebrate and take collective pride in the individual achievements of our members who participate in events. These might include a first ever or regular park run, gaining a podium place, a personal best, or just getting to the end and feeling a justified sense of accomplishment.
Those members who were spectators this year acted as club photographers, capturing smiles as well as the occasional grimace and offered much needed encouragement especially on the numerous hills. They even spotted another famous local – our friendly Frenchay postie. Well done Emerson!
Now is the perfect time to join us and decide what event you want to train for. If it is the 2025 Frenchay 10k race, then you’ll be participating in an exceptionally well organized and marshalled event. Furthermore, your entry fee will be part of 100% of proceeds that go to charity.
