Members of the Rotary Club of Sevenoaks and this year's sponsors welcome you to the 13th Sevenoaks Rotary 10K & Fun Run on 17 March 2019 .
Again this year, our aim is to raise as much as possible for organisations that provide services including charities for vulnerable adults and young people in our community, and ShelterBox in support of those made homeless by natural disaster and conflict.
The first 10Km Run in Knole Park was organised by the Rotary Club of Sevenoaks in March 2007. Its success in drawing athletes and social runners from all over Britain has allowed it to become an annual event. In March 2017 over 600 runners ran the ten kilometres, and the event raised £10,000 for The Bridge Trust, West Kent MIND, Friends of Shelby Newstead and ShelterBox.
Many runners choose to support other charities with additional sponsorship from friends. We would be pleased to hear about your efforts as this adds value to our fund raising. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your story. This year, Knocker & Foskett, Up & Running Sevenoaks, Ibbett Mosely, A Plan Insurance Rivermere at Avery Healthcare, SNSi and Happen Web Technologies are our main sponsors. The grounds of Knole Park are used by kind permission of Lord Sackville and the National Trust, for which we are very grateful.
As in previous years, the 10k Run will again use computer based Chip timing to record runners' times and calculate their positions.
There is always keen competition from a number of both local and more distant Athletic Clubs for the Team Prizes.
There are special medals for all runners who finish, and prizes for the first three men and women's individuals, and teams, plus the first three in the 1.5K Fun Run. Water and bananas will again be provided.
This year the Fun Run will take place at 10:15 along the main racetrack. Last year we had over 60 entries of all ages.
This event is family friendly and spectators are encouraged to come along to watch and support from the many viewing points. We look forward to welcoming you on the 17th March!
