Countdown to charity’s new 10K event is well underway
The countdown to our new 10k run is now well underway as less than 100 places remain.
The St Nicholas Hospice Care 10k Run, which is supported by main sponsor Jaynic, and will take place on Sunday, 8 October, will raise vital funds towards our work to care for those across West Suffolk and Thetford facing dying, death and grief.
Charlie De-Moore, our events manager, said: “We are so happy that our first 10K run has proved so popular, and it is wonderful that so many people have already signed up.
“As this is our first year, we have capped entry numbers at 410, and now less than 100 of those places are available. So, if you want to take on the challenge, don’t delay signing up, as you might miss out.
“If anyone would like to take part, they can sign up through our website, and we’re also on the lookout for volunteers to help out as marshals on the day.”
The St Nicholas Hospice Care 10k will follow a circular route and will be partly held on closed roads. Runners will set off (and finish) from Angel Hill and continue through the Abbey Gardens, up towards Moreton Hall.
An event village on Angel Hill will give runners and supporters a lively atmosphere before and after the race. Music can be enjoyed, and there will be various stalls to explore.
All finishers will receive well-deserved medals and post-race refreshments. A dedicated water stop will also be available at the 5k mark to ensure runners remain hydrated throughout the challenge.
The event is organised in collaboration with Nice Work, a professional race management team, and it will be a UK Athletics licensed chip-timed race.
