3M 10k Run and Fun Run

The 3M 10 Run and Fun Run takes place on Sunday 18th June 2017.

Organised by Aycliffe Running Club and held in June each year, the Race is now in its 19th year.  This fast and flat 2.5 lap course on the outskirts of Newton Aycliffe has attracted hundreds of runners each year.  It is measured accurately, with each kilometer marked.  The event attracts both committed runners and amateurs alike.

The accompanying Fun Run is equal in popularity and provides a great stepping stone towards the 10K in future years.  Many competitors take the opportunity to raise much needed funds for their chosen charity.

Aycliffe Running Club wishes to express its most sincere thanks to the event’s sponsors: (Without the sponsorship the races could not be held).

  • 3M (Road management)
  • Great Aycliffe Town Council (supportive materials, equipment and administration)
  • Northumbrian Water (supply of water)
  • Durham County Council, Leisure Services (support for road closures)
