Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10K
The all-new Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k will take place at 10am on 17 October 2021, starting from Queen’s Park.
It will replace the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon, with the expectation that the ‘more accessible’ 10k distance will increase runner participation and in turn, increase charity partner revenue while supporting the health and wellbeing of local people.
The route starts and finishes in Queens Park and will be centered on the heart of Chesterfield, taking in major landmarks such as the town’s famous crooked spire. It will also feature service and cheer stations on the course and will have a later 10am start.
Runners can sign up to the City Taxis Fun Run on the day at the Race Information Point in Queens Park.
