Run for All, organisers of the Asda Foundation Nottingham 10K, have released details of the route runners will tackle on Sunday 15 May. The 10k is the most recent addition to its staple of popular road races, and, like the other events in the series, will have a strong fundraising emphasis at its core.
As expected, the race will start at Nottingham’s historic Old Market Square and takes the field past the castle, through the Park Estate, along the beautiful Victoria Embankment and the River Trent and by the canal. From here, runners pass the law courts and the Broadmarsh centre, through the Lace Market, up Fletcher Gate and on to Pelham Street and back to the grand finish in Old Market Square.
The event is the latest addition to the successful 10K series, supported by the Asda Foundation, which includes events in Leeds, York, Lincoln, Hull and Burnley. Organised by Run For All, they form part of the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson, who raised nearly £2m for charity by tackling a string of gruelling challenges despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
Charlie Tatman, event director, believes the race will be a significant and popular extension of Run for All’s portfolio: “Nottingham is a great addition to the Asda Foundation series and we are delighted to be bringing an event to a city with such a great running heritage.
“The route chosen showcases Nottingham at its best and we are sure all those taking part will find it a great run. Fundraising is a key part of the series and the efforts of all those involved will support the vital work of some excellent charities.”
