With a course that moves through stunning country roads in North Yorkshire, there is little surprise that this Sunday’s (27 May) Northallerton 10K is another sell-out. The 10k has become a massive hit with club runners, over 52 clubs will be represented this weekend – a remarkable stat considering the fact the race is just three years old.
Indeed, the race has seen its stock soar since 2016 when it attracted 480 runners, a figure that rose to 700 last year. 1000 competitors have registered for Sunday, with the limit reached last month.
The 10k lends support to the Pendragon Community Trust, a small, local charity focused on providing support to the lives of those with physical, mental and emotional difficulties. The multi-sensory unit based in Northallerton is an inspirational place and has become a real savior to so many families in the area.
Tom Kerfoot told us what Sunday’s runners can expect: “The course is looking in good condition due to the dry weather although we are expecting a hot morning, but plenty of crowds in and around Northallerton to cheer them on. Rob Scott is the undefeated champion of the course and is running again this Sunday – we are expecting some excitement at the front.”
