Following a successful inaugural event, the Sandridge 10k is back on Sunday 12th Septmeber 2021. Last year, despite covid complications, some 300 runners took on the Sandridge 10k or 1mile family fun run virtually. Runners developed their own routes as far and wide as Yorkshire, all running on the same day and receiving a beautiful hand cut wooden medal for their efforts.
For those more local runners, 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 be signing up for staggered start times and will be led around the route by an audio guided GPS app. Pending government guidelines, race organisers hope to set up Race HQ in the village for medal handout and a (covid safe) drink too!
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.
