A RUNNING event which 'shows off the lovely local area' will return this month. 

The Thornbury 10k which takes place on the rolling country lanes around Oldbury with wonderful views is on Thursday, June 27. 

Runners will start a short walk from Oldbury Sailing club and finish at the Anchor pub. 

Gazette Series: Last year's Thornbury 10km, which also finished at the Anchor PubRace director Colette Jackson said: “I love having these events that show off our lovely local area.

"We couldn’t do it without the fantastic volunteers from the club who come out and make it safe and fun for all the participants - so a big thank you to them."

For 2024 runners' efforts will once again be recognised with a wooden medal.

Anyone who takes part in all 3 TRC Race Series 2024 events (Riverbank Rollick, Thornbury 10km and the Oldbury 10 mile) the medals will create a larger impressive medal.
