Races Under a Tenner – 2022

on 20 March 2022

Running can be an expensive hobby if you’re into racing. After realising how much I spent in 2019 (half of which I didn’t get to), I decided to focus on prioritising races which cost under £10 to enter, and there are more out there than you realise when you start looking! Races do not have to break the bank, especially if you’re happy to support your local running clubs for a cheer and a smile rather than handing over your hard-earned cash to a bigger company for a metal plate on a ribbon you won’t no what to do with by the time you get home 🙂

Below is the list of the races I have come across in the North-East to date with a £10 or lower entry fee for affiliated runners (usually add £2 if you’re not affiliated). If I have completed them, either this year or previously, and written a race review this will be hyperlinked with the date, and the race entries where possible will be linked in the race title.

This page will be updated as the year progresses – with Covid-19 restrictions giving so much uncertainty over the last two years, some races have not yet been officially opened for entry or fixed upon dates yet.
