The Care for Kids Barnstaple 10K is back!

North Devon Gazette

Sign up for the Care for Kids annual Barnstaple 10k in July, which will be a LIVE event again for the first time in two years.Â

The Care for Kids Barnstaple 10k will take place on Sunday, July 10, starting and finishing at Park Community School. There will be a medal and tshirt for all finishers and prizes for the fastest runners in each age category. Â

It’s a largely flat route, which makes it the ideal race for beginners and experienced runners hoping to achieve a personal best. The Barnstaple 10k is supported by headline sponsors Brewer, Harding & Rowe Solicitors and there is the opportunity for other local businesses to sponsor the event. Get in touch with Care for Kids North Devon if your business can help.Â

Care for Kids Charity Manager, Jacky Massos, says: “We are really excited to relaunch our Barnstaple 10K, after hosting virtual events for the last two years. It will be so good to be back! There’s a medal, there’s a tshirt, there are prizes for the winners AND it will raise loads of money for our charity. Even if you aren’t a runner yet, there’s plenty of time to train between now and July, so join us!”Â

All proceeds from the run will go towards local charity Care for Kids North Devon, which provides financial support to North Devon families who have a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or condition. Care for Kids also carries out enhancements at the children’s ward at North Devon District Hospital.Â
