2017 will be the 15th running of the Timberhonger 10k, so called as most of the route is on Timberhonger Lane. It has traditionally been part of Bromsgrove Carnival weekend with all profits donated to charity. This year we will be raising money for local charities the Primrose Hospice, the Basement Project, Libby Mae's Little Angels and the Midlands air Ambulance.
Over the years the race has become famous for it's friendly Carnival atmosphere, great crowds at the finish, and a picturesque course with a now infamous hill.
The Timberhonger 10k is organised by Bromsgrove and Redditch Athletic Club under UK Athletics rules.
