City prepares for the return of the Nottingham 10K – see map of road closures

After a three year hiatus, the countdown is on to the 2022 Nottingham 10K taking place on Sunday 22nd May which is expected to attract thousands of runners.

As one of Nottingham’s most popular running events, the day is expected to generate a huge cash boost for a host of good causes.

The race is being organized by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, in partnership with the University of Nottingham.

The 10K route will take place almost exclusively on one of the UK’s most scenic university campuses and take in Highfields Park boating lake.

This partnership will see £5 of every entry donated to the Nottingham Breast Cancer Research Centre, based at the university.

Tristan Batley-Kyle, Run For All’s Head of Events, at Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, race organiser, said: “After a two year hiatus, we are really looking forward to welcoming runners to Nottingham for the Nottingham 10K. Unfortunately an event of this scale does mean some road closures are necessary to ensure the safety of all involved.”

“We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused and will lift the closures as soon as possible.”

The Nottingham 10K official partner charities include; Nottingham Breast Cancer Research Centre, Notts County Foundation, Nottinghamshire Deaf Society, Mind Nottinghamshire, Maggies and the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

The Nottingham 10K is supported by Nottingham City Council, High 5, Arla Protein, Coopah, Go Puff, Water in a Box, Shokz, Up & Running and Marathon Photos.
