Entries for the Central Health 10K, organised by Bondholder Sporting Futures, opened last month, and the charity have seen record number of places snapped up within the first few weeks.
Among the first to sign up for the 10K, which will take place next year on 15th April, were two teams from Bondholder Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK. Last year’s Toyota teams ‘Always Better Runners’ and ‘The Runner in Front is from Toyota’ both fared well, recording impressive times to take the third spot overall, but are back to improve their overall standing whilst defending their bondholder crown.
Toyota and Sporting Futures also work together on the Toyota Road to Success project, designed to help 16-25 year olds who aren’t in employment, education or training to improve their skills for the workplace. This project has also been nominated for a national award recently, at the Children and Young People Now Awards, so the partnership continues to strengthen.
Race organiser Emma Pilgrim said, “It’s great to get entries open again for next year’s race, our biggest fundraiser for the charity. Toyota always turn out in force and it was no surprise they were our first business teams to take on the challenge – we’re hoping to see a third team from them too this year!”
Hazel Clint, Senior Manager at Toyota said, “I love taking part in the Derby 10k, it’s the one race I do each year and I’ll most definitely be part of the Toyota team again this year. The atmosphere is fantastic and the crowd keep you going, especially heading back to Pride Park at the end. We can’t wait for 15h April!”
If your business has what it takes to compete for the Bondholder crown, sign up today to support a local charity! Teams can have between 4-10 members, with the top 4 times combining to give the team total. All entries are available online: www.sporting-futures.org.uk/register
