Sevenoaks Rotary Knole Park Charity 10k Run

The 11th Annual Sevenoaks Rotary Knole Park 10k Run on April 2, 2017, will raise funds to support breast cancer research, hospice care for children and young people, the homeless in Kent, and Shelter Box for international disaster relief. This year the Fun Run will take place in an earlier time slot (10:15 AM) along the main race track. Last year we had over 40 entries. This time we hope to exceed the previous record number. Families can be assured of a warm welcome. Minimum age for the fun run is 9 years on the day. The first 10k Run in Knole Park was organised by the Rotary Club of Sevenoaks in March 2007. Its success in drawing athletes and social runners from all over Britain has allowed it to become an annual event.  In March 2016, 600 runners ran the ten kilometres and the event raised £10,000 for charity. Runners who wish to support their own charities as well, via friends` sponsorship, are very welcome to do so. This year, Knocker & Foskett, Up & Running Sevenoaks, Ibbett Mosely, A-Plan Insurance Sevenoaks, Happen Web Technologies, and The Chinaman are our main sponsors. The grounds of Knole Park are used by kind permission of Lord Sackville and the National Trust, for which we are very grateful. After the success of the last 5 years, the 10k Run will again use computer-based chip timing to record runners’ times and calculate their positions.  Spectators are encouraged to come along to watch and support from the many viewing points. The organisers are hoping for good weather again, following the excellent spring day we enjoyed last year.
