Following a successful event, the Sandridge 10k is now in it’s third year, taking place on Sunday 18th September 2022. Last year, with staggered starts, some 300 runners took on the Sandridge 10k or 1mile family fun run virtually. Runners started in the village school grounds and were staggered throughout the day to allow for social distancing.
Medals were handed out in the village, and all three of the village pubs offered runners a free drink for their efforts. It was a wonderful safe and well needed celebration in the midst of a pandemic.
This year, runners for both the 10k and family fun run will start from the Village school grounds. New for this year, runners will be able to enjoy a food and drink fair by local people.
The Sandridge 10k committee are committed to creating an event that has virtually no carbon footprint, encouraging families and young people to get fit and get outdoors. Sandridge Village is an integral part of the surrounding countryside providing a rest and refreshment to visitors.
Our official charity partner is Sandridge Primary School which fosters a sense of pride in making a positive contribution to the success of the school family and wider community.
