Record Brass Monkey 10k Race

Brass Monkey

record numbers face the cold

It was a cold but sunny Sunday morning when record numbers of runners turned out to make this years Brass Monkey 10k & Fun Run the most successful one to date.

Over 350 athletes and fun runners made the start line and went on to complete four laps of the famous oval track before finishing underneath the grandstand for a well earned drink, goody bag and medal.

The event was a great success with the fast flat course for the serious runners and a friendly lively atmosphere for the fun runners and children. 

Total profits from the event were £4828.70 which was a huge increase on previous years and all proceeds raised from the run will go directly to providing specialist palliative care to patients living with cancer and heart failure at Lakelands Hospice.

We would like to say a big thank you to Nationwide who sponsored the event and to all our other corporate supporters who donated items for the goody bags etc, and also to the tireless team of Lakelands volunteers without whom none of these events would happen.
