Curly’s Athletes wins best 5K and 10K races in Yorkshire and UKJanuary 22, 2019It’s been a pretty incredible journey for the Curly’s Athletes Team over the past three years as they’ve seen their events increase in number with the number of runners, walkers, children, adults and volunteers getting involved.
They have just found out that both their 5K event (Run for Wildlife) and 10K race held in Doncaster, have won the best 5K and 10K in Yorkshire. This means that they’ve also been nominated for the best 5K and 10K in the UK. They will be travelling to the Running Awards in London in April to find out how they’ve done.
Their Run for Wildlife event is run at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and is now in it’s third year. Last year at the Running Awards, this event was given the accolade of the best 5K in the the UK.
Doncaster 10K starts and finishes from the iconic Doncaster Racecourse and in 2018 saw 3,000 athletes pounding the streets of the town centre, along Bennetthorpe and down Leger Way. It was a spectacular sight to see so many people running and clearly enjoying themselves. Planning is already under way for the event in November this year!
Curly’s Athletes has had much help and encouragement from Doncaster Chamber over the years. They anticipate that Curly’s will continue to go from strength to strength and this is in part to the fabulous support that they have and continue to receive.
