New Running Event - May Day 10k at Rother Valley Country Park

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am helping to organise a new running event in aid of the NSPCC which is taking place at Rother Valley Country Park on May Day, Monday May 2nd at 10am. It is a 10k race with a football theme, runners are encouraged to wear their favourite team's colours and prizes will be awarded for the team with the fastest fans! The race costs £10 to enter, with all proceeds going to the NSPCC, and there is also a 4k fun run which you can enter for £4 on the day.

 

Full details can be found here...

And you can enter online here...

 

Virgin Money Giving

 

When you enter online this creates a fundraising page but sponsorship is optional, just forget about your page once you've entered if you don't want to get sponsored for the event.

 

We are hoping for a good turnout for this to raise money for a great cause so lets get a few Blades and Owls (and Millers, Tykes and Spireites!) involved!

Yes, this is a new event so we are trying to generate as much interest as possible. 2 laps of the 2 main lakes at Rother Valley on nice flat terrain.

Sounds good to me, plus its a flat course so you should be able to set a PB if you try.

Unfortunately runners do still have to pay the £3 parking charge, but as the race itself is only £10 it is still fairly cheap compared to other 10k races even taking this into account.

Sounds interesting. I'm trying to get back to fitness (it's a slow process for me, hah), so when if this turns into an annual event I might take part in future.

Not sure on how many have registered so far, will get in touch with the NSPCC to find out, we are hoping for a good turnout to support the event in it's first year though so please sign up! As people have said, it's about as easy as a 10k race gets in terms of terrain so is ideal for beginners running their first race or experienced runners going for a PB.

Is there a lower age limit for the smaller race?
