THERE is a little more than week to go until the annual Lexus Croydon 10K comes to town – one of the most popular road races held in the region.
This well-established race, hosted by Croydon Harriers, will be taking place on Sunday, October 19, and normally attracts about 500 runners.
The race often features some of the best athletes in the region and starts at Lloyd Park Avenue before heading out to Sandilands and the surrounding area.
Large contingents from local clubs Striders of Croydon, Collingwood AC and South London Harriers are also expected to be in action.
There is also a corporate team challenge with squads from Trinity School and Southwark Council already entered.
Prizes are on offer for all age groups from junior men and women to veterans over the age of 80.
Runners of all abilities are always welcome to enter and for many runners every year this is often their first-ever event.
For budding young athletes there is always the 3km fun run, which always proves a popular event for nine to 14-year-olds.
