Derby County Community Trust are officially launching Derby’s biggest race, and the Trust’s biggest fundraiser for 2019.
The Derby 10K is a 10-kilometre road race, organised by Derby County Community Trust that starts at Pride Park Stadium and passes some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, including Derby Cathedral, the Silk Mill, the Council House and the Guildhall, before looping back towards the football ground, where it finishes outside.
This year’s 10K back in April attracted 4088 individual runners, 681 business team runners and 697 fun runners – raising a fantastic £30,000 for the Trust!
It also saw Councillor, and Mayor of the City of Derby at the time, John Whitby running the 10K as part of his efforts to fundraise £50,000 before ending his term in office on May 23rd.
John officially started the race alongside Mel Morris CBE, Hardyal Dhindsa, Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire, and Kevin Huffington, Clinical Director of 2018 headline sponsors Central Health.
The Derby 10K supports the development of the invaluable programmes delivered by the Derby County Community Trust in the local community.
These programmes include; rehabilitation for those strugging with substance misuse, supporting the recovery of cancer patients, providing sport sessions for those with Down’s Syndrome, volunteering programmes in Kenya, education programmes studying A-Levels and BTEC qualifications, among many more.
2019 will be the Derby 10K’s 19th year as a flagship event in the city, aiming to be the biggest and best year yet.
The race will take place on Sunday 7th April 2019 – there are a number of entry options available including discounts for UK Athletics members, discounts for Derby County Community Trust supporters, options to enter with your colleagues and a family fun run.
