As the official charity partner, Northamptonshire Health Charity invites participants to run and raise funds to support the enhancement of patient care across Northampton General Hospital, Kettering General Hospital, and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Participants can join the run for free by committing to raise a minimum of £150 through sponsorship. This exciting opportunity allows runners to not only challenge themselves physically but also make a meaningful impact on healthcare initiatives in the local community. The highest fundraisers in each category will win a prize! Money raised goes directly to supporting local healthcare initiatives across our NHS Trusts.

Join us for this unique chance to run from Sixfields Stadium, home of League 1 football club, Northampton Town. The start and finish of the race will be inside the stadium before moving out onto the closed roads around Northampton. This fast and flat route is the perfect opportunity to set a new personal best or simply a fun morning out with an exclusive medal waiting for you at the finish.

Each kilometre will be accurately marked out and we have plenty of helpers to keep you on track and encourage you on your way to that finish line. Come and join us for an unforgettable race experience you will not forget.

You don’t have to run 10k though! The event offers various options for participants, including a 5K route and a junior run. This inclusivity encourages individuals of all ages and fitness levels to join the cause. Every step taken and every pound raised contributes to the charity's mission of enhancing patient care within the local NHS.

Jonathan McGee, NHC Chief Executive said: "We are thrilled to be the charity partner for this year’s Northampton 10K event on May 26, 2024. This partnership provides a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together, stay active, and make a tangible difference in enhancing patient care within our local NHS. We invite everyone to join us and help us achieve our fundraising goals".
