THE Brewers 10K is back and runners are being invited to sign up for this great community event.
A total of 478 people took part in the inaugural Brewers 10K in 2022 with hundreds more turning out to cheer them on.
The race was the first-ever closed road event in Burton history, with the race starting and finishing at the Pirelli Stadium.
Now runners of all abilities are being invited to register for the 2023 event which will follow the same route, and which will take place on Sunday, October 29 with a 9am start.
You can join the race for a special early bird price of £24 for a limited period only, after which the cost of entry rises to £26.
This year’s race is being organised I partnership with Run Through – the UK’s largest running event organiser.
Rob Sullivan from Run Through said: “Run Through is delighted to be partnering with Burton Albion Community Trust for the second hosting of the Brewers 10k. Starting and finishing at the Pirelli Stadium, it's a great event for football fans, and the fast and picturesque course is perfect for runners of all abilities.
“We're excited to work with the Community Trust to build on the great work they have already done to make the event iconic for Burton-on-Trent and the local area, and to help raise funds for important causes."
The route will see runners exiting right out of the stadium and onto Princess Way. It then follows Main Street, Church and Station Road in Stretton before heading through Burnside, Knowles Hill, Rolleston Road and Bitham Lane before returning back down Princess Way and finishing at the Pirelli Stadium, the home of Burton Albion Football Club.
The first runner to return home last year was Callum Abberley, of Burton Athletics Club, in a fast time of 33 minutes and 47 second. Sally Higgs set the new female course record in a time of 40 minutes and ten seconds.
Runners are invited to try and beat those times but as the whole route is closed off it is perfect run for beginners, people that want to beat their PB, or for those that want to run just for fun.
Stefanie White, BACT Business Development Manager, said: “We are delighted to be bringing back this great community event, with profits going to support the community work undertaken by BACT.
“We hope to see even more runners take part this year and now the Brewers 10k is established even more people turning out to support those taking part.
“We are also looking for sponsors and partners to join us with lots of opportunities for businesses to get on board and be part of the event. Please get in touch if you are interested.”
