More than 1,300 runners took part in the first-ever Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k on Sunday 17 October 2021.
Thomas Shaw was the first to cross the 10k finish line with a time of 00:33:32, with Emma Holt the first female to finish in a time of 00:41:12.
The oldest participant in the event was David Onion, aged 81, and Daniel Greatorex was the youngest at 15.
Max Taylor (10), and Sophie Bramley (12), were the winners of the City Taxi’s Fun Run, which took place within the boundaries of Queen’s Park in tandem with the main event.
Around 15 organisations participated in the first Pronto Paints Wellbeing Challenge, a team entry into the Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k.
The event also helped raise thousands for good causes across the region, with £59,000 pledged for charities, including main charity partners – Redbrik Community Foundation, Chesterfield-based Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, along with many other charities selected by the runners from across the region.
The Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k proudly supports charities across the North Derbyshire and Sheffield region.
Redbrik was built on an ethos of transparency, compassion and care.
We’re always working to give back to the community we serve, so in 2020 we established the Redbrik Foundation to improve the lives of people and communities across South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire.
The Redbrik Foundation is a newly formed charitable trust which will support a number of local organisations each year, primarily seeking to enhance the lives of children and young people, the elderly or vulnerable and those with disabilities.
Ashgate Hospicecare provides compassionate, specialist end of life care to patients with a life-limiting illness and their families both in our Inpatient Unit at Old Brampton and in the community of North Derbyshire. Every £1 donated to Ashgate Hospicecare – whether through participating in an event or donating or buying items in our shops – makes a huge difference.
Bluebell Wood cares for children and young adults whose lives are just too short, offering services both in the families’ homes and at the hospice. The organisation provides space and provisions for families to make precious memories as well as a place to stay for the children and their families should they need to.
The Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k is also supported by Chesterfield Borough Council and sponsored by a host of fantastic local and regional businesses.
