TenTenTen Makes It Twelve!

Sheffield's popular 10K trail race returns to Endcliffe Park this October...

In what is now its 12th year, the Sheffield TenTenTen will return to Endcliffe Park on 9 October. Attracting over 1000 runners each year, the 10K race offers runners an exciting and creative multi-terrain course as well as a great atmosphere for participants, spectators and volunteers alike.   

The course has been created with a twist of creativity and innovation. Organisers say: "This is not your regular road race, it is run on grass, road, paved paths and flowing woodland trails.

"It's a really balanced mix and introduces novices to the world of trail running gently. The course does have a few lumps and bumps, twists and turns, and all adds to the challenge and fun."

The nature of the course makes this an inclusive event, attracting a wide range of running abilities from those completing their first ever 10K, to those who have represented their country at the elite level. Organisers comment that 'many have started their running journey at this event, and caught the running bug by doing so'.

Commenting after a previous staging, Mark Gamsu said: "Really enjoyed the TenTenTen again this year - its a great race - lovely atmosphere - and a pleasant change from running on the road - the puddles and mud added to the fun!"

The first edition of the event was staged on 10 October 2010, hence the name, and over the last 12 years participants have not only enjoyed the exciting course, many of them have also helped raised £70,000+ for Weston Park Hospital - one of only three dedicated cancer hospitals in the UK. This year organisers are asking people to help them raise 12K for the 12th TenTenTen.
