The Running Bee Foundation (see their Three Peaks Challenge here) launches a brand-new 10K at Haydock Park Racecourse. The race sees all profits going to deserving wellbeing causes across the North West.
The Foundation provides grants to community initiatives across the region, and helps to promote health, wellbeing and the fight to tackle and reduce childhood obesity.
On Sunday 15th August 2021, The Haydock Park Racecourse 10K will see participants take in a location with fantastic history and a completely enclosed facility. The course, which is set in an area of parkland, has been a historic home for horseracing as far back as the early 19th Century – with the current racecourse opened in 1899.
The Running Bee Foundation’s Chair of Trustees Carl Austin-Behan DL OBE said: “This is an entirely brand-new event from us at The Running Bee Foundation for 2021, and we are incredibly excited to see runners old and new get out there and do something fantastic for their local communities.
“All profits raised from the race will go straight back into the Foundation, so we can continue our vital work in supporting health and wellbeing initiatives and helping people.”
Located between Manchester and Liverpool, runners will receive official chip timing, water on route, plus an exclusive finishers t-shirt and medal.
Race entry begins at £16 for Club Runners and £18 for Standard Entry. For first-timers, the £5 MyFirstMile™ fun run is open to all ages and ability levels. This is not timed and all that finish any distance will get a special medal at the end.
