Rotherham 10k run returns for 2019
The inaugural Rotherham 10k took place in 2018 and had around 800 entries for the town-centre course.
Generously sponsored by Pawson Transport of Braithwell, the event was a huge success on a blazing hot May day.
The race charity, Age UK Rotherham, benefited by just over £2400 as a result.
The 2019 event again aims to support Age UK Rotherham should a surplus occur. It does not currently have a major sponsor, but is able to proceed thanks to the success of 2018.
The promoters and organisers are the running clubs of Rotherham district, namely Rotherham Harriers & AC, Kimberworth Striders and Maltby Running Club. Their time and effort are given for the benefit of the sport, the people of Rotherham and of the wider area.
They are joined in the partnership by Rotherham MBC and are again being supported and helped by Pawsons, and by Age UK Rotherham, Rother FM, Rotherham Advertiser, Rotherham Rotary and Sitwell Rotary clubs.
Funds received for race entry are directed solely to the stated charity after reserving a cushion of funding for the following year’s event.
The race is open to anyone aged 15 or over on the day and there will also be a fun run taking place, which covers one lap of Clifton Park.
The 10k route takes in Clifton Park and parts of Rotherham town centre.
