Sell-out expected for first Reach Mansfield 10k

Runners and spectators alike will fill the streets of Mansfield to support the first Reach Mansfield 10K and contribute towards local good causes on Sunday.

Organised by Nottinghamshire charity Reach Learning Disability, the Reach Mansfield 10K is a new addition to Nottinghamshire’s sporting calendar. It has been created in place of the well-supported Mansfield Half Marathon and means that Mansfield will once more be home to a first-class running event attracting professional athletes, amateur runners and hobbyists alike.

Online entries for the Reach Mansfield 10K will close when entries reach 650, and with entries close to full organisers are encouraging participants to book now to avoid disappointment.

Steve Shatwell, CEO of Reach Learning Disability, said: “We’re delighted with the huge amount of interest the Reach Mansfield 10K has received and would like to encourage participants to sign up ahead of the day to avoid any disappointment.

“On behalf of everyone at Reach Learning Disability, we’d like to thank everyone who is supporting the charity through sponsorships and wish you all the best of luck. Money raised from the event will go towards supporting over 200 adults with learning difficulties and their families in Nottinghamshire.”

The race route, which consists of two 5k circuits of the historic town centre starting at Titchfield Park at 9.30am, has also been chosen as the Notts AAA County Championships race for 2015.

Among those running on Sunday will be Mansfield Town mascot Sammy the Stag (also known out of costume as Doug Carroll), Reach Learning Disability ambassador Tom Fisk and two-times British Champion Mark Johnson, who aims to complete the run in 32 minutes.
