As the sun pounded down on the North Yorkshire capital on Sunday #TeamO&3 were busy setting up the local community event of the year: The Northallerton 10K.
From an idea generated sat around the family dinner table three years ago we have managed to deliver our 3rd annual 10K race. However, this year we were faced with a whopping 1,000 entrants and spectators to match. The idea has developed into an annually celebrated event in Northallerton, attracting people from all over the UK, including some international entries which was exciting.
The £11,000 raised on Sunday all goes to www.pendragon-ct.org a worthy and highly respected independent charity focused on providing support for physically & mentally disabled individuals in the northern region of the UK. The money raised is ploughed back into the state of the art facility that was built by our awesome parents back in 2015.
We plan to build the event year on year, attracting bigger crowds and with that hopefully bigger earnings for Pendragon Community Trust.
The course this year was a real challenge with undulating hills and high temperatures (we like our runners to get their money’s worth) yet remarkably, the course record was broken at 34:20mins!
This year we introduced the massage tent for all runners before and after the race which proved very popular. Of course, armed with the finest massage oils: Calendula Infused in Sunflower Oil / Comfrey Infused in Sunflower Oil / Refined Grapeseed Oil / Refined Kukui Nut Oil
Check out our video highlights below of a race day to remember!
We would love you to join us in beautiful North Yorkshire to run The Northallerton 10K in 2019. Entries are now open and O&3 will not only be sponsoring the event but will match the entry fee for any O&3 stakeholder that enters…. Go on, dust off those trainers!
