The Sherwoods Vauxhall Darlington 10km Sunday 10th August 2014
SHERWOODS VAUXHALL DARLINGTON 10KM
2014 will be the 27th year for Darlington’s 10km road race. The annual race, which this year will be held on Sunday 10th August 2014, has gone from strength to strength over the years. We are delighted to again announce Sherwoods as our headline sponsor for the 12th year, who are again working in partnership with Vauxhall. The Northern Echo, TFM and Mizuno are all supporting the 10km again this year and we are extremely pleased to welcome back Teesside University as our water station sponsor.
The course is unchanged from last year and the course records set in 2008 by Aly Dixon and 2011 by Yared Hagos, still stand.
For this year’s race all 10km entrants will again receive personalised chip timing, which mean times will be recorded for each person when they cross the start and finish lines rather than from when the starting pistol sounds. We also have an SMS text results service, which means we can supply everyone, who provides us with a mobile telephone number, with their race time and finishing position. Photo Inspiration [external link] will be official race photographers for this year.
Once again there will be no junior 3km this year but there is again a prize section within the 10km, for young athletes aged 15 to 17. The 10km will as always be supported by our popular Family Fun Run, which is effectively open to all.
Thanks to our 2014 sponsors
