Whitchurch 10K Launched for 2018

A winning 10K fundraising event has been launched for 2018, with Sir John Talbot’s School and headline sponsors Grocontinental joining forces once again to bring the road race to life, following the huge success of Whitchurch’s first event of its kind earlier this year.

The 10K road race takes place on Sunday 8th April around the market town of Whitchurch. It follows hot on the heels of this year’s event which raised over £5000 for charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support.

In April more than 550 runners participated in the inaugural road race starting and finishing at the school and taking competitors on a route around the historic market town, showcasing shops, parks and local amenities.

Organisers are now hoping the event will welcome more than 600 entries in 2018 and raise further funds for its chosen charity partner.

Headteacher Mr David O’Toole said, “The warm reception and level of support for Whitchurch’s first 10K run was astounding from our sponsors, runners, volunteers and the wider community. We are delighted to be underway with preparations to cement the Whitchurch 10K in the race calendar for 2018 and welcome wider support in making this happen.

“We have recently received news that the event has been nominated for two national Running Awards, a true tribute to the local area and race organisers. I do hope you will join us in 2018 and I look forward to seeing you on race day.”
