The annual Derby 10k, 3k Walk⋅Jog⋅Run and 3k self propelled wheelchair event, organised by Sporting Futures, is to be held this year on Sunday, April 28.

The start venue is once again the home of Derby County Football Club, Pride Park Stadium, where the atmosphere will be buzzing with the excitement of the event, with lots of activities and stalls to entertain spectators in the Race Village. 

Sporting Futures is hoping the success of London 2012 will inspire more people than ever to take part in the event. Event manager Richard Kay said: “The event is now in its 12th year and it is growing from strength to strength, with places selling out for the past six years.”

Richard added: “As always, it is guaranteed to be a fun day for all the family to come along to. After running through the heart of Derby city centre for the Derby 10k or along the River Derwent for the Derby 3k Walk•Jog•Run, the finish line will be spectacular. Participants will accelerate down the finishing straight at the side of the pitch in Pride Park Stadium to the roar of spectators eagerly awaiting their arrival.”

All profits will go directly to the Derbyshire- based charity, Sporting Futures, which works with partners to reduce the risk of crime and antisocial behaviour throughout Derbyshire communities by encouraging targeted young people to participate in physical recreation.
