ENTRIES NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR BRIGG POPPY 10K & MILITARY CHALLENGE 2020

 

With many Brigg functions and get-togethers being cancelled because of the current Coronavirus emergency, it's good to see that entries are now being accepted for one of the town's major annual events.
Curly's Athletes will be hosting the Brigg Poppy 10K and Military Challenge 2020 on the morning of Sunday, October 25.
The organisers have set a limit of 750 runners (in total) for the races; the military section will see competitors carrying weighted backpacks.
Everyone who enters is being asked to obtain sponsorship in support of the Poppy Appeal.

Curly's Athletes began accepting entries at the weekend (March 22).
Hopefully the Coronavirus restrictions will have been lifted long before late October, allowing the 10K to proceed as planned.
Pictured here are some scenes from the 2019 event which took competitors from Brigg towards Cadney and back to town to finish on the County Bridge and collect their well-earned medals.
With runners and many spectators in attendance, this major event can see more than 1,000 people in attendance.
