Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k route confirmed

Organisers of the Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k have confirmed the route for this year’s race due to take place on 17th October 2021. Supported by Chesterfield Borough Council, the 10k will be the first running event of its distance to take place in the centre of the market town.

The race begins in Queens Park before runners head out onto the A617 on the popular Chatsworth Road section of the route towards Brampton, passing close to event charity partners Ashgate Hospice.

After passing the halfway point, runners will make their way eastwards towards the historic town centre before heading down Glumangate past the service station at Redbrik’s Chesterfield office and taking in the famous Crooked Spire.

Runners will then return to Queens Park to be cheered towards the finish line, taking a final lap of the green space.

Charity partners for the event are Redbrik Foundation, Ashgate Hospicecare and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Previously more than £140,000 was raised for good causes by the Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon.

John Timms, Event Director at Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k, said: “We’re delighted to confirm the route for this year’s 10k.

“Following feedback from the previous Chesterfield Half Marathon’s and Chesterfield Borough Council, we have designed the route to provide an enhanced experience for our runners and also reduce traffic disruption and length of road closures significantly.

“It also offers more opportunities for people to come and watch the event, with spectators able to stay in Queen’s Park or the town centre. Friends and family can easily see runners a few times within walking distance from the start.”

The 10k is an accessible event and aims to promote and support local people’s health and well-being with a fast, picturesque route.

In addition to the 10k, the 1km Blachford Fun Run and Pronto Paints Well Being Challenge will also occur on 17th October 2021 – more details to follow soon.
