Orpington High Elms 10k - Sunday 9th June 2019
Orpington Road Runners value the great support we receive from clubs at this tough, but well-regarded race which will take place at High Elms Country Park near Orpington on Sunday, 9th June.

The race is a single lap, chip-timed event around the paths and trails of the park. There's car parking, medals, all profits go to charity and we receive great feedback on the organisation and supportive marshalling.

We'd be grateful if you would pass on the entry details ( to your club members and we look forward to welcoming runners, families and supporters on the day.

Thank you from the High Elms10k Race Committee

Chislehurst Half Marathon - Sunday 19th May 2019 at 9.30 am


I'm writing to let you know that the fourth running of this local annual half marathon is due to take place in May in case your club members are interested, particularly as we have had a good number enter this local event in previous years.


Based in Chislehurst, this half marathon is a circuit which includes the trails and open heathland of glorious Scadbury Park, with 50% of the total distance being offroad.


Race HQ is at Glebe Football Club in Foxbury Avenue off Perry Street in Chislehurst which offers catering, a licensed bar, onsite parking, baggage storage and proper loos, all in a safe environment. Apart from the usual podium trophies, there will be gold medals for the first 5 men and first 5 women to finish, silver for the next 20 men and 20 women finishers, and bronze for all other finishers.


The advance entry fee remains at £23 for affiliated runners, and online entries can be accessed via the Run Britain portal at


The beneficiary of all of the race proceeds is Orpington children's' charity the Maypole Project which supports families with children who have complex illnesses, for which £16,000 was raised from the event in its first three years. 


The race website is at and there is a Facebook page for keeping up to date as race day approaches.


With best wishes
