Last Call For Middlesbrough 10K
It may be taking place this weekend, but there is still time to toe the line at the Middlesbrough 10K...
It really is the final countdown to Middlesbrough's big day of running with the town's 10K and 3K fun run all set for this weekend (Sunday, 3 September).
This much-loved 10K, part of the Run For All series of events, is not to be missed. Kicking off at 9am and featuring a town centre start and finish in Centre Square, the course explores some of Middlesbrough's most well-known landmarks including Albert Park, the Dorman Museum, Teeside University, the Transporter Bridge and Riverside Stadium.
This is a 10K race for everyone with organisers commenting: "Whether you are new to running, looking for a new challenge or you you’ve got your eyes set on a PB, remember this is a Run For All event – all abilities are welcome!"
Perhaps you’re looking for a fundraising opportunity, if so there’s still time to raise some much-needed funds for a charity close to your heart or one of the event’s partner charities - the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Teeside Foundation, Home Start Tee-Side and Leo’s.
For those looking for a shorter distance, the 3K race ticks that box. Taking place after the 10K, it is a fantastic distance for runners of all abilities and with finisher medals and goody bags for every participant.
Looking back to the 2022 staging, the winning place was claimed by Wondiye Fikre of Leeds City AC in 32:00 while first female was Gerda Steyn in 33:40. You may not be able to emulate these times, but for your efforts you will be rewarded with a goody bag of rewards at the finish line, including post-run treats and a hard-earned bespoke medal to show off with pride!
Runners from all corners of the North East will be lacing up their trainers for this epic challenge, what’s stopping you from signing up too?
