Sell-out Success for the Mansfield 10K!

Sell-out Success for the Mansfield 10K!

This weekend, Mansfield played host to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities who took part in the annual Mansfield 10K event.

On Sunday morning, more than 850 runners took the streets around the town centre to complete either the 5K or 10K route.  With a carnival atmosphere, crowds of supporters gathered to cheer on competitors, which this year included a record-breaking 77-year-old walker as well as clients and staff from Reach Learning Disability.  

The Deputy Mayor, Cllr Mick Barton, awarded prizes to the winners and runners-up of the 5K and 10K races.  This year’s 10K race was won by Stuart King in 31 minutes and 56 seconds, whilst the new 5K race was won by Kristian Watson in 15 minutes 34 seconds.

For the first time ever, this year’s event completely sold out.   The introduction of a new 5K route and the option to complete the challenge virtually, meant that hundreds more runners wanted to join the event which started on Church Street and ended in the beautiful Market Square. 

Reach CEO, Steve Shatwell, said, “For the event to be a sell-out just shows what a special place Mansfield is.  At a time when road races across the UK are struggling to survive, the Mansfield 10K bucks the trend.  The fact that we close the roads for the race, means that the 10K is a real community event that is supported by the local people and shows off the town at it’s very best”.

Reach Fundraising Officer, Sarah Cobb, said, “Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, including McDonald’s, and our collaboration with Mansfield District Council, this year’s event was bigger and better than ever.  Well done to all the runners - we look forward to seeing you all again for the 2018 Mansfield 10K!”
