THE organisers of the 2020 Babcock 10k Series have extended the ‘early bird’ discount for entry to the three-race series for a final time.

If you’re feeling the after-effects of too much Christmas Day food, and want to do something about it in the new year, you can enter online at before midnight on Thursday, January 2 and get a discount of around 20 per cent on the full entry fee for the series.

Until that date, entry for the three races costs £35 for runners affiliated to a registered club and £41 for those who are unaffiliated, compared to the full price of £51 and £41 respectively.
