High Bridge Jewellers' Bourton-on-the-Water 10k

Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire -

Highbridge Jewellers’ Bourton-on-the-Water 10k

Bourton 10k 2021 announcement


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and the challenges in making sporting events COVID secure, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bourton 10k, which was due to take place on 28th February. We’ve made the decision before opening entries for the race to cause the least inconvenience to all involved.

We look forward to seeing you all return to the Bourton 10k in February 2022.

The results for the 2020 Highbridge Jewellers’ Bourton 10k are available from DB Max via this link.

Whilst the route for the 2020 race remained unchanged, our race HQ was at Bourton Vale Cricket Club, Rissington Road, Bourton on the Water, GL54 2AY.

During this challenging period, with most of the news being sombre in all directions, Bourton Roadrunners wishes to share a little piece of good news with everyone. We are pleased to confirm that the club has been able to donate £5,000 which is being shared by the two charities supported by this year’s Bourton 10k, which took place prior to the COVID-19 outbreak hitting the UK. North Cotswold Foodbank and Parkingson’s UK will both receive £2,500 to aid their invaluable work.

We are grateful to Highbridge Jewellers for kindly supporting our race again. Also to the Bourton Vale Cricket Club for their generous support with the provision of the race HQ.
