Flitwick 10K Race
Sunday 15th April
The Flitwick 10k, organised by Ampthill & Flitwick Flyers, has been running very successfully for many years. Starting in a town location, the undulating course taskes you out to rural countryside, before finishing on the Millennium Park, Flitwick. The route will take place on relatively quiet roads but they are not closed to traffic. A challenging but enjoyable course and a nice mix of club runners and local first runners. The event is well marshalled and supported throughout. All finishers receive a memento and prizes are available for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
There is also a FREE kids race of approximately 1M on footpaths after the main race, around 12 noon.

Sport Makers aims to inspire people aged 16 and over in Beds and Luton to get involved and help people that they know to get involved in sport and make sport happen at a local level.
From setting up sport with your mates, like fun runs or five-a-side football to helping out with local sports clubs, Sport Makers is a great opportunity to get involved in, in the lead up to the 2012 games.
Sport Makers need to spend at least 10 hours organising or leading sporting activities. They can then be introduced to organisations that need their help or can join forces to make sport happen in our communities. Others may want to organise sport informally, or maybe work on things that make a sporting activity happen. The point is that each Sport Maker can make this programme their own.
What are the different types of Sport Maker?
100% Informal - You call your friends and arrange something fun you can all do.
NGB Programme - Bring friends, family or work colleagues to a National Governing Body programme
Club Volunteer - Use your skills to assist a local club
Event Volunteer - Help make an event bigger and better, either join in or help run it
So far there are 116 Sport Makers who have attended a workshop or convention in Bedfordshire and are now starting their own journeys.
By taking part in Sport Makers, and completing your 10 hours, you could secure tickets to the greatest show on earth: Sports Makers and London 2012 are working together to give people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend next year's Olympic Paralympic Games. The London 2012 Ticketshare Programme is funded by the London 2012 Paralympic Ticketing Programme and for more information please go to www.sportmakers.co.uk.
