STANSTED 10K FUN RUN & WALK

The next Stansted 10K will take place at 11 am on Sunday 11th June 2017 starting from Bentfield Green, Stansted Mountfitchet. We will also have a 1 mile fun run starting at 10am on the green for all ages and abilities. All entrants under 12 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult.

The Stansted Fun Run covers 10 km (approx. 6 miles) over country and road. The event is highly organised with a measured route and kilometre markers. There are at least 3 water stations, The Red Cross will be on hand as well as the police at the start to close the road. There will be marshals positioned along the route with mobile telephones, as well as a marshal going out with the last walkers.

Runners of the 10K can run individually or as part of a team. All runners will receive a medal. There are also trophies for fastest male and female runner, fastest boy and girl aged 16 or under (accompanied by an adult), fastest male and female veteran (over 50 years old) and fastest overall team. All runners are chipped so will receive an accurate time report when they cross the line.

Charities

Our target this year is to raise £10,000 - 10k for £10k. We have 3 chosen charities this year:

St Clare Hospice

St Clare Hospice is a local charity which cares for hundreds of people across West Essex and the East Hertfordshire border every year. They provide free, compassionate care and support to adults with life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers.

Grove Cottage - The Home of Bishop’s Stortford Mencap

Grove Cottage provides social and educational activities for people of all ages with learning disability to develop their potential, avoid social isolation by supporting lifelong friendships and to provide respite for their families.

Huw Johnson Club

The Huw Johnson Club is a social group for adults with learning disabilities. They meet every Thursday evening (term time) in St John's Hall, Stansted from 7 - 8.45 pm. A wide range of activities are held - from bowling and craft nights, to discos, pub trips and special-guest-evenings, offering activities which are appropriate for those with a range of abilities.

In addition, we will be making a donation to Henham Fun Run who have kindly postponed their event to avoid a diary clash.

The surplus from the entry fees will be divided equally between our 3 charities. In addition, entrants are invited to open a Virgin Money Giving page for the Charity of their choice – the links are on the Sponsorship page. Funds pledged in this way go direct to the Charity and can benefit from Gift Aid.

History

Sport AidThe first Stansted Fun Run and walk was held in 1986 as a part of the International Sport Aid event – The Race Against Time, organised by Bob Geldorf and others.

Stansted contributed its own part with what became the first Stansted 10k Fun Run and Walk at the suggestion of Jim Collins, still very much involved today.

The event became an annual fixture in the Stansted Mountfitchet diary, later becoming bi-annual. The present Committee have decided to return to holding the Run every year in response to popular demand.

The 2016 event was a great success, raising over £6000 for St Clare Hospice. This could not have been achieved without the support of our runners, helpers and sponsors. The lead sponsor was David Lee, Estate Agents. Other sponsors were: Angela Lever & Co (medals and ribbons) Grenville Construction (Portable loos and much more), Marketing Kinetics (Website), and Heckford Norton (Trophies). The bottled water for the participants at the finish was sponsored by Linden House Hotel. Further valuable support came from Intercounty, Liz Lake Associates, De Rosa and Face Create.
