A hugely popular, inclusive and supported race for participants of all abilities, the day saw all corners of the town come out to show their support. From running clubs, spectators, volunteers, schools and universities, the day highlighted the incredible communities in and around the town of Middlesbrough.
Organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, the UK’s largest not-for-profit events company, in partnership with Middlesbrough Active and Middlesbrough Council, the 10K race kicked off at 9.00am in Centre Square.
The route explored some of the town’s most well-known landmarks including Albert Park, the Dorman Museum, Teesside University, the Transporter Bridge and Riverside Stadium. Runners then headed back to Centre Square for the finish line.
Caroline Lambert was the first female across the finish line in a time of 37:22. Caroline was followed shortly behind by Jennifer Berry who clocked 37:38 for second place and Catherine Williamson who took third with 37:49.
First male across the finish line was Lewis Gamble-Thompson in a time of 31:35. Joseph Wilson took second place in 32:18 with Dan Tate in third with 33:05.
Also starting and finishing in Centre Square, the 3K route took participants along Albert Road, Cleveland Street, Vulcan Street and back to Centre Square for the big finish.
As part of the event, runners had been encouraged to fundraise for their own charity of choice or one of the event’s partner charities. This year’s partner charities include; the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Teesside Foundation, Home Start Tee-Side and Leo’s.
Tristan Batley-Kyle, Operations Director at Run For All said: “We want to say a huge well done and thank you to all our participants who joined us today. With the addition of the 3K, it has been a fantastic day of running and fundraising for all those involved.
“The enthusiasm and support from everyone involved, from the participants themselves to the many spectators, sponsors, partners and volunteers, all ensured the day was a fantastic success.”
Paul Ayre, Everyone Active’s Contract Manager, said: “We really enjoyed playing our part in the Middlesbrough 10K. It was great to be involved in a community event for all ages and abilities, which benefited local and national charities.”
The Middlesbrough 10K is supported by Middlesbrough Council, Everyone Active, Arla Protein, High 5, Coopah, Shokz, Up and Running, Gradwell, BBC Tees, Marathon Photos Live and Business Desk.
