The Classic 8K Route

Alfie Shrubb 8K Classic route

The Alfie Shrubb 8K Classic route is a 4k out and a 4k back. This route is on the country roads of Green Rd. On the route you will pass 26 beautiful farms, the route starts off flat then rolls into the hills. You would call the Alfie a route that is rolling along with the farmland. The route is closed off to all traffic, only athletes will be onthis route till the race is done.

We have good sponsors at Alfie and are please to have Eload on course for the 4th year. Of course we will have water as well. At this time of the year it is perfect weather to run an 8k.

We have kit pick up at the Whitby Running Room on Saturday June 4th but will also have race day kit pick up from 7:00am-8:00am. Kit pick up is at MJ Hobbs Public School 2296 Taunton Rd. There is lots of parking at MJ Hobbs.

We have had many who have enjoyed the Alfie experience, this will be our 9th annual. Danny Kassap holds the mens course record at 24:39 he set in 2007. Tania Jones holds the course record for the women at 30:42

We are proud to have the Alfie Shrubb 8K Classic as a Road Warrior event.

The race is chipped timed by Chip Timed Results.

I am proud to say that this year the Alfie Shrubb 8K Classic will have a special meaning. Alf Shrubb is now part of the England Athletics Hall Of Fame. Alf is in the Hall Of Fame with Sir Roger Bannister, Lord Sebastion Coe, Harold Abrahams, what an honor to have Alf Shubb in with this mix and more. It gives me great pleasure to provide the very best at Alfie, I hope you will join us to revive History of this great athlete, this was the reason we began this race in 2003
