The Corsham St Georges 10K takes place on the Sunday nearest to 23 April, St Georges Day; the patron saint of England. The run is now in its 28th year and is organised jointly by the Rotary Club of Corsham and Corsham Running Club. It is open to all aged over 15 on the day and last year attracted some 600 entries. It is possible to enter on the day, although this is more expensive and also due to the rush for last minute entries there will be large queues and plenty of time must be allowed to obtain the race number and its associated chip for electronic timing. On the day registration closes 15 minutes before the start of the Race in order to process the applications into the database.
The route is accurately measured and the appropriate Race Licence and Certificate of Accuracy will be available for inspection in Race HQ. Approximately half of the entry fee goes to the support of local charities decided by the Rotary Club as this is their major fund raising activity.
