[E]den Runners, the Penrith based running club, have announced they are again organising a 10k road race that will take place on Sunday September 25th at 10am, with the race headquarters at The Stoneybeck Inn, just outside Penrith
This is the second time the club have put on this race, with last year’s being declared a successful event and this year every finisher to cross the line will be getting an edible medal! The biscuit baked medals will be handed out at the end of the race and are being especially baked by two of the clubs star bakers.
“Home baked biscuit medals seems like a great way to end a race, we are really looking forward to it!” said race organiser and Eden Runner, Wade Tidbury.
“Eden Runners are very excited about putting on this race for the second time. Many who entered the race last year gave us very positive feedback on how they found the route, with many commenting on how it was relatively flat for Cumbria! I think it suits all abilities because of this,” “As a club, we invite all to come along and enjoy what should be a great race!” added Wade.
Last year 120 runners entered the inaugural race and the course record was set for the men by Jon Fletcher from Border Harriers at 33.30 and the fastest woman was Lucy Stobbart from Cumberland AC at 40.35.
“This year we are hopeful that we will fill the race; we are limited to 200 and online entries are now open. In hosting this race we are keen to encourage people to sign up early, to avoid disappointment,” added Wade.”

The race route has been accurately measured and is registered with Run Britain for a race licence.
