Course Records

Fancy being a record holder? Check out our course records below and see if you can beat them!

All our races are chip timed for accurate results, with course records held for the existing course used.

The course records shown in the tables below are done in the format name (year) - hours:minutes:seconds.

HaverHalf and Haver10 were held for the first time in 2014 - both were held with revised courses in 2015, and while the HaverHalf course remained the same the Haver10 course changed again for 2016. HaverMara was held for the first time in 2016. HaverHalf and HaverMara are both measured and certified, with Haver10 being GPS measured due to part of the course being off road. All the races are licensed by UK Athletics. Due to course changes, the course records for Haver10 are recorded from 2016, and HaverHalf from 2015.

St Eds Runs - the Unique Bars Running Festival was held for the first time on Sunday 29 October 2017, raising funds for West Suffolk Hospital's My WiSH charity and Bury Town pastors. The festival offered 10k, half marathon and marathon routes (in addition to the fun run), with 912 runners taking part. Due to the error in misdirecting the 10k runners resulting in their course coming up short, the female course record for the 10k will be set from 2018 onward (the male winner ran the correct course in 2017).
