Welcome to the Takeley 10k

Welcome to the Takeley 10K Website.

We are pleased to announce that the Takeley 10K will take place this year on 8th September 2024. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone .

We’ve been very fortunate over the past years with all the support we have had. Hundreds of people from near and far have put on their running shoes and enjoyed the beautiful scenic route that is Takeley 10K. We’ve had tremendous support from the local community – from Takeley Parish Council, to Takeley Scout Group to people giving up their Sunday to marshall, man the water stations, registration desks and the great music and PA system! It’s the fantastic community effort that has enabled us to grow from our initial race of around 150 runners to 428 finishers in 2019!

This year we have a maximum number of 500 entries available and encourage you to sign up early to secure your place and join the rest of the Takeley 10K team and runners for this year’s event.  All 10k runners are chipped so will receive an accurate time report when they cross the line.

In addition to the 10K run, there will also be a 1 mile children’s fun run.

Entry fees:

10K – £18 (no entries on the day)
Children and Families Fun Run – £2 minimum (charitable donation, on the day)

The Takeley 10K started in 2010 with the aim of bringing the village together to raise funds for the refurbishment of the Silver Jubilee Hall and Social Club.

Phase 1 of the refurbishment was completed in May 2014, including new electrics, plumbing, insulation, air re-circulating and doors for the main hall.

Phase 2 was completed in 2016 with the new toilets and a new entrance area linked to the Social Club.

We want to say a huge thank you to all the runners, sponsors and volunteers that have helped make the Takeley 10K the event that it is. You have all made these improvements happen and we look forward to seeing you each year for the annual Takeley 10K run!
