What to expect en route
Starting and finishing in the picturesque East Yorkshire town of South Cave, the inaugural South Cave 10k course takes in some beautiful scenery through quiet country roads and provides just enough of a challenge to keep even the seasoned striders on their toes. We start at the beautiful gates of Cave Castle - not many start lines in Yorkshire can boast such a battle-ready backdrop :) through the historic town of South Cave (not a village, locals will remind you: it was granted a town charter by King Edward I in 1291!).
You will then run through the countryside to the pretty village of Ellerker before looping round and returning to South Cave, with a couple of sharp climbs to add to the fun before your run is completed by a lap of the local playing field. As you collect the first-ever South Cave 10K medal, we hope you will have had as much fun as we have had – setting the event up.
Please note : You must meet at Race HQ / registration point for the start of the race. Do not head towards Cave Castle until told to do so by the race organisers. Thank you
The organisers are grateful to the South Cave Pavilion Committee for allowing the use of their building as the Race HQ. With changing facilities, refreshments and toilets it is an ideal base for registration and for the post-race prize presentations. The help of all those associated with the Pavilion Committee is gratefully acknowledged.
