On your marks, get set, go! Prestigious Chatsworth running event in aid of local hospice care is back.
The iconic Chatsworth estate is once again set to play host to a prestigious running event that raises vital funds for local hospice care. The annual Helen’s Trust 10k race and 3k fun run are set to take place on Sunday 12 September.
Chatsworth’s beautiful grounds have hosted the hugely popular event for 12 years now – after an obvious Covid-19 sabbatical in 2020. The circular, mixed terrain 10k route showcases the estate’s breath-taking views and has long been a firm favourite with both professional and amateur runners. The 3k fun run is a fantastic opportunity for little legs to get involved in the competition.
Everyone who takes part is helping to raise money to fund hospice care across the Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire and High Peak. Helen’s Trust, in partnership with Blythe House Hospicecare, provides free palliative and end of life care to local patients who wish to stay in the comfort of their own home at the end of their lives.
An early bird discount for 10k registrations is open until the end of May. Participants can sign up online for £17 (UKA affiliated runners) or £19 (non-affiliated runners), saving £2 on the full price. Registration for the 3k fun run is £6 for adults, and £4 for children. All prices include water on the course, a snack on completion, and a medal.
