The 2015 Women’s Running 10K Race Series is now finished. Please click here to see information on the 2016 race series.
The race will take place at the Victoria Embankment, 82-284 Arkwright Street, Trent Bridge, Nottingham, NG2 2GH on the 12th July at 10.00am.
A flat route across a tarmac surface, it is the perfect route for first time 10Kers and those looking for a new 10K PB! The 10K course follows two anti-clockwise loops alongside the stunning river and the 5K, a one-lap loop.
The 5K option in association with This Girl Can is the perfect race for beginners – a flat, one-lap route, it is ideal for those running in their first mass-participated event.
With lots of picnic spots by the river and on-site catering to grab coffee and refreshments, it’s a great location to bring your family along to cheer you along and enjoy a fun day out.
Here are some of the comments from last year’s runners:
‘This was a perfect course for my second 10K, managed to knock five minutes off my previous time’ – Sarah
‘I loved it! Had a great time, great run, great atmosphere.’ – Tania
The warm-up will be lead by athlete mentor Amy Hughes from the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust. A world-record holder, Amy has run 53 marathons in 53 days to raise money for the Isabelle Lottie Foundation. The 26-year-old from Oswestry is a true inspiration to all women looking to test themselves. Amy will get you fired up for the race with a dynamic warm-up, leaving you feeling supple, revved up and ready to go.
All entrants will receive a free goody bag, filled with quality kit and nutritional goods and finishers will receive an event t-shirt and medal for their achievements.
A range of pacers will also be there on the day, covering 50 minutes, 55 minutes, 60 minutes and 70 minutes to help you to achieve your goals. You can meet the pacers here.
Running for Alzheimer’s Society
This year, our leading charity race partner is Alzheimer’s Society. Many people know someone affected by dementia. The society reveals that 850,000 people in the UK will have a form of dementia by 2015 and in less than ten years, this will grow to over a million people. Working to find a cure for this debilitating disease but also to support those living with the condition, the society relies on charity funding to make this happen and we’re absolutely thrilled to be able to help raise funds for the charity through the Series.
Twenty eight year-old freelance blogger, Hannah Clarke is running in the event to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society. After seeing her grandmother, Pat, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2007 and seeing her tragic decline, Hannah is passionate about raising money for Alzheimer’s Society, in the hope that, one day, there will be a cure for the disease.
