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 and hosted by Rother FM, 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. You can enter both the 10k and Fun Run online at www.rotherham10k.com
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.
