Get Set For Nottingham 10K

Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K

There are only two days to go until 3,000 runners test themselves at Sunday’s (28 May) Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K. The new PB-potential course will add an extra incentive for participants. 

The race, organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, is part of their 10K series along with 10-mile, half marathon, marathon and family fun runs. This is its second outing with the 2016 inaugural race becoming an instant hit with the running community. 
 
This newfound fame has resulted in a high demand for places this year causing the organisers to increase the number of entries. A decision that was endorsed by Asda Foundation senior manager Julie Ward, who said: “It is encouraging to see that this year’s run has attracted another great response.”
 
Last year’s race raised a significant amount for good causes and organisers are hoping to repeat this on Sunday for the benefit of their partner charities and those chosen by the runners. They will receive an additional boost via a new Charity Team Challenge, which is open to teams of four people. These teams fundraise for their designated charity while competing to be the fastest and win an extra £500 towards their target. 
 
Another new feature is the fast, flat route which starts and finishes at Nottingham Forest FC’s City Ground. Runners proceed through the scenic Lady Bay area and onto Holme Pierrepont Country Park, completing a lap around the Regatta Lake before heading towards the finish. Most roads will be closed as a safety measure. 
 
Entries are still open for the Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K. Visit the event website for details.
