The Bognor Prom 10k road race first took place in May 1994. It was set up and organised by Bognor Hotham Rotary Club and has enabled runners to raise thousands of pounds for good causes. For the 2017 race, some members from Bognor Regis Tone Zone Runners joined the Hotham Rotary Club to help stage the race. In 2018 and 2019 the Bognor Prom 10k road race and Junior fun run were organised by the Bognor Regis Tone Zone Runners in conjunction with the Hotham Rotary Club.
The 2020 Bognor Prom 10k road race and Junior fun run were cancelled due to COVID-19 but the plan is to hold the rescheduled races on Sunday 22 May 2022.
The 10k race would not be possible without the help of our many sponsors, partners and helpers.
The race is particularly fortunate in to have the Bognor Regis Tone Zone Runners, this club is providing more and more support to the race to enable the Bognor Prom 10k to continue in its present family friendly format. So big thank you from us to them and if you do wish to run more than once a year why not have a look at their site and consider joining up www.tonezonerunners.org
We are delighted to welcome Frame of Mind as our charity partner for 2020 and we hope that the run will raise significant sums of money for this charity as well as other good causes close to the hearts of our runners. At its discretion The Rotary Club of Bognor Hotham may increase monies raised by the runners, through it's top up scheme - full details supplied with race packs. The Club has given away tens of thousands of pounds to charities and good causes from funds raised from this event.
