Gloucester 10K celebrates raising over £100,000 for Charities since 2014

This year’s Gloucester 10K race, (23 June), provided a double celebration, marking not only the 10th time the race has been run, but also almost a decade of fund raising, which has generated over £100,000 for local and national charities.

The Gloucester 10K race was resurrected with the help of Davies and Partners back in 2014. This year marks the 10th race run and saw a field of 800 runners cover the scenic route, which was designed by Race Director and Davies and Partners Director, Nigel Tillott. The route incorporates many of the City’s landmarks, including Gloucester Cathedral, Docks, Quays and the canal towpaths.

The three charities to benefit from the proceeds of this year’s race were: the James Hopkins Trust, which provides nursing respite care for Gloucestershire’s life limited and life threatened young children; Gloucester Samaritans, which has offered listening support to the Gloucester and surrounding communities for over 50 years: SARA Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA), the specialist marine and land search rescue service for Gloucestershire, Hereford & Worcestershire, and Gwent.

Since the 10k’s relaunch in 2014, race organiser Nigel Tillott, has been supported by Davies and Partners colleagues,  IT Manager Dan Smith and Legal Director Raymond Perry, who have worked together with a team from Gloucester Quays Rotary, to develop the event, into one of the City’s most successful annual events.

Commenting Nigel said, “We are delighted that the Gloucester 10K  has become an important event for the local community and one which promotes and celebrates the beauty and success of Gloucester.   We have steadily increased the numbers of runners taking part over the years and this year’s event was open to 950 runners.  This included teams those the popular ‘Corporate Challenge’, which this year was won by a team from the Independent School, King’s Gloucester.” 

He continued, “We can’t believe where those 9 years have gone since we relaunched the race.  But we are now focused on the future and will be working closely with the local community to ensure we continue to build on the race’s success for the next decade.”
