A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OUR READERS!
The 2018 Wyvern 10K is now ready for your entry.
We’d love to see our previous runners return and bring new with them.
We did sell out in 2017 even faster than 2016 – so our advice is don't hang about!
All the details can be found on the race website www.wyvern10k.co.uk. And you can enter by following the links on the entry page or by going to directly to the Athlinks Entry Site.
We are delighted to be able to announce that thanks to the generosity of our runners, sponsors and stallholders, we have been able to make a donation of £1500 our 2017 partner charity – the Dwarf Sports Association South. In additional – recognizing their support for the race over the past 6 years- we have given a further £500 to the Eastleigh Lion’s Chairman’s Charity 2017 - Simon Says.
Thank you to everyone that contributed to these fantastic amounts. It is great to know that the benefit of the Wyvern 10K goes way beyond the event day.
We will be announcing our 2018 charity in the next month and entries for our 2018 event on, July 8th, will open in early January.

We had some great food and drink available this year. If you want more here are some links to our catering friends:
No we are not afraid to admit that we do look to other event for inspiration on how we can develop the Wyvern 10K. One of these has always been the Hurlsey 10K.
It is, rightfully, a very popular fixture in September (this year Sunday 17th). A beautiful course, fantastic atmosphere – check out the website for some great drone footage that shows the start.
Entries are open but don’t hang about. Places usually sell out well before event day.

We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to:
We are really looking forward to seeing you all next Sunday the 9th of July.
Our website www.wyvern10K.co.uk has been updated with all the latest information about the event day – please take some time to look through it. In the meantime this post presents the edited highlights – the most important bits you need to know.
Generously sponsoring us for another year are QualitySolicitors Knight Polson. They have sent us the following item which provides some excellent advice for everyone.
A law lecturer we once knew was very fond of saying that the easiest way to become a criminal was to get into a motor car. It’s certainly true that the rules and regulations about everything from road signs to tyre tread depth seem endless, and it’s very easy to break them without knowing. Here’s a guide to some of the more serious pitfalls.
Nobody likes them, and almost everybody has been caught by one sometime – but they are very difficult to fight in court. The time to worry is when you collect several endorsements, because if you “tot up” twelve points on your licence you will be disqualified – unless that is, you can convince a court that you will suffer “exceptional hardship” from loss of your licence. It’s not enough to show that you will lose your job, though, you usually have to show that others will suffer too – again we would recommend that you seek legal advice. If you are successful in keeping your licence, you have to then drive very carefully until the points come off!
This is one where you have to watch the paper work. If you think you have insurance but in fact you haven’t, you are still committing an offence that will earn you six points on your licence. If your bank account is bumping along the bottom, and your premiums are paid by direct debit, make sure the monthly payment has gone out. If it hasn’t, your policy may be cancelled before you know about it.
We Can Help
Our Criminal Defence Team are able to advise on all these issues – unfortunately you will only get Legal Aid in court for the most serious offences. (Drink Driving cases will only qualify for Legal Aid if there is a good legal or scientific argument to be made, or if your blood/breath alcohol reading is very high). We can advise you whether you will be eligible for Legal Aid. If you are not eligible, we can advise you on a fixed fee so that you can decide whether you want to defend the case on a paying basis. Call us if you have a question.
And finally, one golden rule
If you were in the driver’s seat, don’t try and convince the police that it was someone else. You will convert a simple speeding offence into Perverting the Course of Justice, which almost always leads to prison!
QualitySolicitors Knight Polson are proud sponsors of the Wyvern 10K. If you need friendly, expert legal advice we would be delighted to hear from you.

We are down to our last 200 places.
If you or your mates haven't entered yet - best not delay. We suspect that we will sell out well before the end of June for the second year in a row - which will be fantastic!
Our blog will keep you up to date with all the developing details of the event
