THE ANNUAL HELEN’S TRUST 10K RACE AND 3K FUN RUN Chatsworth’s beautiful grounds have hosted the hugely popular event for 12 years now - after an obvious Covid-19 sabbatical in 2020. The circular, mixed terrain 10k route showcases the estate’s breath-taking views and has long been a firm favourite with both professional and amateur runners. The 3k fun run is a fantastic opportunity for little legs to get involved in the competition. Everyone who takes part is helping to raise money to fund hospice care across the Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire and High Peak. Participants can sign up online for £17 (UKA affiliated runners) or £19 (non-affiliated runners), saving £2 on the full price. Registration for the 3k fun run is £6 for adults, and £4 for children. All prices include water on the course, a snack on completion, and a medal. Find out more and sign up today: www.blythehousehospice.org.uk/event/chatsworth-10k/
