Derby County Community Trust has announced a date for this year’s Derby 10K.

The Derby 10K is the city’s largest running event, attracting over 5,000 participants each year.

It sees the streets of Derby come together to support runners, who may be competing for the first time, aiming for a personal best or supporting a charitable cause.

The event is also the largest fundraiser for Derby County Community Trust, which uses the power of Derby County to improve lives and communities through sport, physical activity, health and education.

After several setbacks and postponements in line with government restrictions, the trust has now announced that 2021’s Derby 10K will take place on Sunday 17th October, from 9am.

All 2020 entrants will be contacted regarding their entry depending on which option they chose following last year’s cancellation.

Emma Pilgrim, events and fundraising manager at the trust, said: “It’s been a hugely difficult 18 months with changing restrictions to try and get the event rearranged on many occasions, but as we have now entered a time period where we are seeing large-scale events return to our calendars, we could not be more thrilled to be welcoming runners back.

“As a charity, the Derby 10K is vitally important for our fundraising and it also brings so much to the city.

“Nothing can beat that Sunday morning where the roads are taken over by thousands of dedicated runners and we really have missed being able to host such a fantastic event.”

The course will begin and end as usual at Pride Park Stadium, taking in the sights of the city centre in a largely flat and circular route. The event will once again be backed by headline sponsors HUUB.
