Council backs Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k by offering free family swimming vouchers

Chesterfield Borough Council has teamed up with the Redbrik Foundation 10K to offer a free family swim voucher to every runner who signs up for the event before the 31st July.

The Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10K is taking place on Sunday 17th October, beginning at 10am from Queen’s Park, Chesterfield.

Runners in this year’s 10K are fundraising in support of local charities; Ashgate Hospicecare, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice and The Redbrik Foundation.

Councillor Jill Mannion-Brunt, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said “The Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10K will be a fantastic event, and we are proud to be supporting it.

“The route for the 10k will start and finish in Queen’s Park, taking in some of Chesterfield’s major landmarks along the route. It will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase the town to runners and visitors and we hope that lots of our residents will join us in supporting this great event, and help raise some money for some great charities.

“The Redbrik Foundation, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, and Ashgate Hospicecare are all brilliant local charities, who rely upon public support, like fundraising from the 10K to continue to provide their extremely valuable services.”

In addition to the free family swim offer, every runner participating in this year’s 10K will receive a free week’s fitness membership from Chesterfield Borough Council, included in their race packs.

Event Director, John Timms, added: “It’s fantastic to have the support of Chesterfield Borough Council behind our event.

“We have had a very positive response to our inaugural event and we already have over 800 runners signed up.

“The free family swim voucher is a great incentive to encourage even more people to get involved. We are very much looking forward to seeing everyone on the start line.”

The event is open to everyone over 15 years of age and with your entry fee you will receive your race number, a technical running t-shirt and a finisher’s medal.
