Double celebration for Purbrook Ladies 5 race winner

Have your say

Victory are hosting the Selsey 10k on Sunday.

The popular fast-flat race is organised by 2016 Portsmouth Coastal half-marathon winner Dan Bailey and Peter Harding, with the help of a wealth of experienced and knowledgeable runners.

This the third edition of the event and the plan is to make it bigger and better than previous years.

The race starts at 10am at the Academy Selsey, Secondary School.

It is a flat and fast 10k road race around the town of Selsey, taking in parts of the Bunn Leisure caravan site and the sea front.

It is an ideal opportunity for runners who are looking for a 10k personal best, or are new to the distance.

The start will be in Paddock Lane, a 150m walk from the school (follow signs and instructions) and the finish will be within the school grounds.

Ensure you are lined up in Paddock Lane for 9.55am ready for a quick race briefing.

This will be ready for a 10am prompt start.

There is limited onsite parking, with around 150 spaces.

While there are also numerous public car parks within walking distance.

Entry limit is 500.
