Head Start 5K & 10K is a UK Athletics accredited, chip-timed 10K run and a 5K family fun-run which helps to raise funds for Neurocare part of Sheffield Hospitals Charity. In 2019, Head Start celebrated it’s 10th anniversary with 850 runners taking part, raising over £38,000.

The pandemic has resulted in the charity being unable to stage the event for the last two years, missing out on vital fundraising, but on Sunday 22nd May this is all set to change for the charity as the event will return to Rother Valley Country Park.

The course is very flat so is perfect for participants of all abilities. Whether you're a keen runner, wanting to secure your PB or looking for some fun for all the family, there is something for everyone. Lace up your running shoes and get involved!

Clare Lambert, Neurocare Fundraiser:

We are over the moon that the event has been able to return for this year. After so long it will be amazing to see all of our loyal supporters making their way around the course

The headline sponsor for this year’s event is Darren Brookes from RED Business Machines, who has not only sponsored the event, but will also be running the course himself alongside a team from RED Business Machines.

Darren said:

It is so important to support amazing local charities and their events, particularly after the last few years, we urge everyone to dust off their running shoes and to sign up for the event

RB1 Radio are the official media partner for Head Start and will be at the start line to warm everyone up and send them on their way for the event.

There are still places left for both the 10K and 5K so, if you would like to sign up to the event please visit www.neurocare.org.uk/events to book your place.
