Supporting Rotherham 10k

Accelerate are pleased to confirm we will be supporting the 2022 Rotherham 10k and 1 Mile Fun Run.
The date has been set for Sunday 15th May, with the event taking place from Clifford Park.  The main event starts at 10am giving the runners plenty of time to return to see the 1-mile junior and family fun run starts at midday.
A fully measured and certified course is on offer for those looking for a PB, with previous times that range to those finishing in 90 minutes.  So an event for everybody from the seasoned club runner to those running for health and fitness.   The event will also be ‘chipped timed’.

The men’s record is 33:11 and the women’s stands at 38:42.

The event was started back in 2018 and like so many events had to be postponed in 2020.  That said the virtual event still raised over £10k for the events charity Rotherham Age Concern. It’s good news to see the event back on the calendar for 2022.

Accelerate in supporting the event has contributed to the cost of the race numbers and also prizes. In doing so we have teamed up with Scott Running UK who have also added to the prize and spot prize list.  Up for grabs for the winners will be a pair of the Scott Carbon RC Racing shoe, men’s and women’s.

One thing for certain is that the race is growing with entries already rolling in.  Competitors can expect plenty of support along the route, plus the opportunity to take part in the pre-race warm up. The One Mile Fun Run is an opportunity for families to run together and speedy youngsters to test themselves. Accurately measured and within the confines of the Park the route mostly uses the footpaths before finishing under the finish arch.  The fun run is very much based on the ‘Schools Run A Mile A Day’ challenge with local Running Ambassador Ray Matthews actively promoting this within local schools.

All in all the Rotherham 10k is shaping up nicely to become a major regional event for everyone to enjoy.  So why not get your entry sorted and we shall see you there!
