Run For All confirms guardianship of two northern events

The Tees Pride 10K

Run For All has further extended its presence in the North East after it was announced they have formed a partnership with Middlesbrough Council and Everyone Active to organise the Ali Brownlee Riverside Run 5K and the Asda Foundation Middlesbrough 10K – formerly the Tees Pride 10K.

The expectation is that Run For All, with a portfolio that includes several of the best-attended events in the UK, will allow the Middlesbrough races to reach an even larger audience and grow in the coming years. Both events will continue to take place on their usual date (30 June for the 5K and 1 September for 10K).

Paul Ayre, the Middlesbrough contract manager for Everyone Active, commented on the partnership: “We’re really excited about this opportunity to work with the great team at Run For All, who are considered to be one of the UK’s leading providers when it comes to organising and hosting running events.

“The Middlesbrough 10K and Ali Brownlee Riverside Run are hugely popular and well-established annual events for the Middlesbrough local community and over the last three years, Everyone Active has had the privilege to manage both.

“Something we have been keen to do, however, is grow them and make them even more successful. By joining forces with Run For All, we have got a fantastic opportunity to do that in the years to come.”

The guardianship of both events is the furthest north Run For All have moved since they launched the Leeds 10K some 12 years ago and will be seen by the wider running community as another significant step in their development.

Entry for the Asda Foundation Middlesbrough 10K and the Ali Brownlee Riverside Run 5K is available here.
