Alder Hey Children’s Charity, one of the biggest of its kind in the UK, will be returning to at Croxteth Hall and Country Park on Sunday October 3rd.
After the success of previous editions of the event, where over 1,000 participants took on the 10k route, it’s projected that even more will run in 2021. All profits of the event go directly to Charity as par of the work of Sports Tours International’s in house charity, the Running Bee Foundation.
Kevin Harmer, Running Bee Foundation Events & Sponsorship Manager said; “ The Running Bee Foundation and Sports Tours International are delighted to be working again with Cath and the team at Alder Hey Children’s Charity this coming October. For the Charity to continue to have its very own 10k and Family Fun Run, it will be a key contributor in raising their profile in the sporting sector even further”.
Cath Harding, Head of Community Fundraising at Alder Hey Children’s Charity said; “Alder Hey Children’s Charity are delighted to welcome back the Alder Hey 10k & Family Fun Run this October. The event will enable the charity to raise vital funds and awareness to support the hospital’s pioneering work, to improve the quality of life for not only the young people we treat each year, but through innovations and research into childhood diseases, the quality of life for children across the world”.
On race day there will be an officially measured and chip timed 10k run as well as a Family Fun Run. Alongside the running, the Athlete Village will provide visitors with lots of activities and attractions as well as the iconic Haydock Park Racecourse providing a perfect venue for such an event.
Haydock Park Race Course is one of the area’s most important heritage sites, and is still a popular and functioning sports venue even today. With such an impressive venue as the backdrop for the Alder Hey 10k, runners and spectators will be able to enjoy the whole site and make it a real family day out in support of the charity.
It was a wild weekend at the Marathon du Mont Blanc. Sadly the weather closed in and put paid to some events but a number of our runners completed the full marathon around Europe’s highest peak. Congratulations to everyone on a mega achievement 🏔
