Nottingham 10K's heartfelt move to the University of Nottingham
The 2019 ASDA Foundation Nottingham 10K has a new home thanks to a partnership with the University of Nottingham. And now a percentage of every entry fee will be donated to the university's Breast Cancer Research Centre.
The Nottingham 10K is part of the ASDA Foundation series of races organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All. The birthplace of Robin Hood occupies a special place in the hearts of Jane’s family who are grateful for the treatment she received for breast cancer at Nottingham City Hospital. She hoped that in the future there would be a way of detecting this disease at a very early stage and the Nottingham Research Centre is doing just that. They are developing a blood test that will detect breast cancer early enabling more lives to be saved as a result.
The partnership between Run For All and the University means that £5 of every entry will go to the Research Centre and further proceeds towards the work carried out by the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
Sunday 16 June is the 2019 date for this top Midlands 10K, at one of the most scenic universities in the UK with a new route held almost entirely on campus including the Highfields Park Boating Lake. There are water stations along the course and at the finish and a variety of entertainment to keep everyone motivated. Every finisher will receive a bespoke medal, technical T-shirt and goody bag and post-race massages will be available in the event village.
Entries are open for the ASDA Foundation Nottingham 10K. Visit the Run For All website for details.
