Rushcliffe 10k, 5k and Fun Run 2018
Entries for Rushcliffe 10k, Fun Run and its new 5k are now open.
Keen runners can register for the annual event at Rushcliffe Country Park in Ruddington on Sunday March 4, 2018 delivered by Perfect Motion Sports Marketing.
Visit the event’s new website at www.rushcliffe10k.co.uk to book your place that will support Cerebral Palsy Sport as the official race charity and for up to date information about the event follow us on Facebook @Rushcliffe10k
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Community and Leisure and Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason welcomed the new organisers who are co-ordinating the event for the first time. She said: “The Rushcliffe 10k returns for 2018 and we can’t wait for hundreds of runners to visit Rushcliffe Country Park again in March with a wider programme of events. Great sport is part and parcel of Rushcliffe’s reputation and this event showcases it brilliantly in the backdrop of one of our great Green Flag awarded open spaces. Entries for last year’s race were quickly snapped up so we would recommend runners register their place as soon as possible.”
The 10k is regularly fully booked with 850 runners and an additional 180 places are up for grabs for the fun run.
The new 5k race opens up further opportunities for new and existing runners to tackle part of the course at a shorter distance.
For over 15 years the 10k and Fun Run had been organised annually by Rushcliffe Borough Council. Perfect Motion Sports Marketing were identified as the ideal partners to earn the five year contract to deliver the event however, with experience of coordinating the Sunrise 5k Series across the region, the Mansfield 10k and the Bandana Run in Bramcote Park. Chris Simon, Director and Business Owner at Perfect Motion Sports Marketing, said: “We are delighted to be working on one of the most established events in the Nottinghamshire running calendar. We have plans to further develop the event, building on the success Rushcliffe Borough Council have achieved already. We are developing the event identity, producing a new website and intend to introduce a new 5k element. We’d like to thank the team at Rushcliffe for providing us with the opportunity.”
