YourTown NN10 Community Run 24th March 2019

Our first YourTown NN10 5K Community Run was held at Rushden Historical Transport Museum on Sunday 24th March. The event was proudly supported by Rushden and Higham Ferrers Town Councils, YourTown, Running Buddies, East Northants Council, Freedom Leisure and Rushden Lakes.

The event was a sell out, 100 people signed up to run the circular route which started and finished at Rushden Historical Transport Museum. The 5k Community Run certainly achieved its primary aim which was in bringing local people together in a positive and energising way and at the same time raising funds for two local causes, the Rushden Historical Transport Society Victorian Goods Shed and the Higham Ferrers Community Library Group.

Rushden and Higham Ferrers Town Councils would like to say a big thank you to the many volunteers who gave up their time and helped make the day a success, also thank you to the following local businesses who supported us by donating items for the runners on the day:

Wm Morrison Produce
J & P Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, Higham Ferrers
Asda, Rushden
Cupalicious, Higham Ferrers
Centre Management Team at Rushden Lakes
RPC Promens
Specsavers, Rushden
Anytime Fitness, Rushden
Freedom Leisure

A total of £742 was raised for the local causes.
