9:30am | Sunday 16th October 2022

Run North West are delighted to bring you the Knutsford 10K. Potentially the flattest and fastest course in the North West!! 

 

The race starts within the grounds of Barclays Radbroke Technology Centre, then heads out onto the country lanes of Over Peover, Snelson and Peover Heath, before returning to Barclays Radbroke campus. The race is ran on beautiful country lanes, all fully closed to traffic, we believe this will prove to be one of the fastest 10K races in the North West, with only 77ft of elevation across the entire course. The course overall is super flat with a modest incline at around 2K but then the course drifts down hill from 6K-8K. The rest is pancake flat.

The race is licenced by UKA race licence: 2022-42788

OFFICIAL RACE CHARITY

Our official race charity partner is DKMS, a charity dedicated to fight against blood cancer and blood disorders:

"Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. For many, the best or only possible treatment option is a blood stem cell transplant.

DKMS provides patients with a second chance at life, working closely with their families from diagnosis to transplant and beyond. The donor journey begins with a swab of the cheek that takes less than two minutes and can be the action that leads to a lifesaving transplant."

DKMS create awareness and recruits blood stem cell donors to provide people with a second chance at life.  They raise funds to cover donor registration costs, and support the improvement of blood cancer therapies through their own research.

They also support patients from day one of their diagnosis, providing family and friends with a positive way to get involved by organising bone marrow donor drives that can enhance the donor search, rally community support and provide hope.

If you would like to register as a potential donor you can do this via the following link:

Members of DKMS will be attending the Knutsford 10k to answer any questions you may have, and to take samples from anyone wishing to become a potential donor.

 

ECO WATER 🥤
In a conscious effort to reduce our carbon footprint ♻ and do our bit to save the planet 🌍, we have introduced a bring your own water bottle (pre-filled) to place at the finish area for the end of the race. Completely optional, but every person who brings their own bottle of water is helping to save the planet one small step at a time.

Bottled water will be provided, as usual, for anyone who doesn’t bring their own. We do use a responsible supplier for our water (as well as being ZERO to landfill), their bottles are made out of 51% recycled plastic and are 100% recyclable.
