Moor Park 10k
This event is in aid Mount Vernon Cancer Centre and the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre
Sadly due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to hold the junior Fun Runs on the day this year so this event will be restricted to 10k runners only.
Many people are understandably nervous regarding entering events again and we want to assure you that we take every measure we can to organise a safe, socially distanced event. To see this in action watch our video Covid-19 Safety at ActiveTrainingWorld Running and Triathlon Events
Children and social runners can still get involved by taking part in the Virtual Moor Park 10k & Fun Runs suitable for all ages and abilities! Choose your challenge – 10k, 5k, 2k or 1k and run anytime, anywhere during the month of October. Prices are £10 per adult entry and £5 for Under 16’s. The entry page for the virtual runs is here our Virtual Moor Park 10k & Fun Runs event (read more below).
The Moor Park 10k starts from 3pm (see below for more information on timings). The route starts with a lap and a half of Merchant Taylors’ School playing fields before going out into the private Moor Park estate, across Rickmansworth and Moor Park Golf Courses and back to the school grounds. It is traffic-free.
All profits raised from both events will go towards supporting the amazing work undertaken by Mount Vernon Cancer Centre – helping to fund the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre, specifically the Complementary Therapy Service. In 2018/19 we delivered 2,469 sessions and the service is funded by voluntary donations. Just £35 could fund one complementary therapy session to help ease the side-effects a patient can experience during cancer treatment. You can add a donation to your entry to support this important work or create your own JustGiving page. If you can’t take part, maybe you would like to leave a message of support and say thank you to our dedicated NHS cancer staff by making a donation. You can do so by visiting justgiving.com/campaign/virtualmoorpark10k
