Colin Potter Memorial 10k Race
Darley Abbey Park and Fields
Fri 6 Jul, 7:15pm - 10pm
£13.50 per competitor More price information
A ten kilometre road race, which takes a scenic route through Darley Abbey and Darley Park with hospitality, entertainment, food and drink available before, during and after the race from our race headquarters at Haslams.
The event is held in memorial of a close friend and work colleague Colin Potter, in line with UK Athletic rules, raising money for cancer and bereavement charities. The 7th July 2017 saw our 12th event and definitely one of our best.
The Colin Potter Memorial 10k race is held annually in memory of Colin and to raise money for local charities. In 2016, over £3000 was donated and shared equally between the following charities:
- Nightingale Macmillan continuing care unit
- Winston's Wish
- Treetops hospice
In total over £30,000 has been donated to deserving charities over the last 10 years. A big thank you to everyone who's been involved and kindly donated or taken part in the event.
There's an added incentive to participate in the race; the family of Colin Potter kindly donate £50 to the first male and female across the finish line in the prize giving of each memorial race.
