Do your bit for the community at the SPAR City of Preston 10K
The SPAR City of Preston 10K is set to take place in October and the local community will benefit from this big-hearted event that is the city's running red letter day. This is an invitation to put your best foot forward this autumn and enjoy a day’s racing in a city with a rich sporting and industrial heritage.
Now known as the SPAR City of Preston 10K, the race was arranged for 27 September but due to the coronavirus outbreak has been rescheduled to Sunday 25 October. Runners can expect a fully marshalled route on closed roads that passes through the city centre plus kilometre markers and water stations along the way and at the finish. There will be entertainment at the Athlete Village for participants, their friends and families and a commemorative medal and technical T-shirt for all finishers.
The event also includes The Running Bee Foundation’s ‘MyFirst Mile’. This is aimed at people new to running who get to experience a race day atmosphere as they complete one mile and receive a medal as their reward.
Chris Bird, the Founder and Trustee of The Running Bee Foundation has high expectations of the race. Chris said: “This event is about raising much needed funds to help support community health and wellbeing initiatives in Preston.” These sentiments are echoed by Peter Dodding of James Hall & Co, SPAR’s wholesaler and distributor for the North of England, who added: “It will be an exciting, family centred, community event.”
