The Derbion shopping centre has been announced as the title sponsor of this year’s Ramathon charity road run.

The centre has joined forces with Jane Tomlinson’s Run for All to back the newly named Derbion Ramathon – and the RAM 5 Mile – which are due to take place on the streets of Derby on Sunday 19 June.

The Derbion Ramathon, which is a half marathon, and the RAM 5 Mile, will see 4,000 people take part across both events, in order to raise tens of thousands of pounds for local good causes.

Working in partnership with Derbion, Run for All is looking to increase community engagement in the event, with the all-new Derbion Ramathon Team Challenge, which will see teams of colleagues, running buddies and friends battle it out to be crowned champions.

The team challenge will be open to teams of four or more who take on the full half marathon distance.

Both the half marathon and five-mile course will start and end in Iron Gate, in the shadow of Derby Cathedral before taking runners through the city centre.

The Ramathon will then see runners pass through Elvaston Castle Country Park, Alvaston Park and past Derby County’s Pride Park Stadium and back to the city centre for the big finish.

Adam Tamsett, general manager at Derbion, said: “We’re extremely proud to support the Ramathon and to be officially announced as the new title sponsor, as the races really do bring the city of Derby together.

“We’re looking forward to seeing all those taking part at the starting line in June.”

Tristan Batley-Kyle, head of events at Run for All, said: “Having the support of Derbion is a fantastic way to start the year.

“The centre is at the heart of the city and together we will work to engage and inspire people to pull on their trainers and take part in one of the events this year.”

Those wanting to take on the 5-mile distance must be 15 years or over to enter. Entrants to the half marathon must be 17 years or over.
