Scheduled for Sunday 30 October and staged in partnership with Sheffield City Council, the 10k becomes the latest addition to the Run For All Series.

The 10k will begin in Arundel Gate in the heart of the city and take runners on a journey along Charter Row and Ecclesall Road, before skirting the edges of pretty Endcliffe Park. Participants will then continue along Riverdale Road, past Endcliffe Vale Road, close to the Botanical Gardens, then travel down Brocco Bank and back to what is set to be a thrillng centre finish.

Fronted by the Run For All team, the Asda Foundation Sheffield 10K will become the latest 10k to a portfolio that includes events in Leeds, York, Lincoln, Burnley, Nottingham, Hull, and the most recently launched, Bury. Sheffield will be the final race in the 2016 series.

Run For All Events Manager Charlie Tatman said: “We’re thrilled to be back in Sheffield for a new 10K run, hot on the heels of the successful Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield. If the reception from Sheffield for the half marathon is anything to go by, our runners are in for another brilliant welcome!”
