The Helen’s Trust Chatsworth 10k, proudly sponsored by BRM Solicitors, returns to the stunning Chatsworth estate on Sunday 18th September 2022.
The event was established in 2008 with the aim of raising funds to support Helen’s Trust. The circular, mixed terrain route takes in the grounds of the ‘most beautiful stately home in the world*’ and is a firm favourite with both professional and amateur runners.
As demand for Hospice at Home care increased across North Derbyshire, Helen’s Trust formed a partnership with Blythe House in 2020. Together the charities provide a the highest standard of care to more local patients, who wish to stay in their own home at the end of their life.
Every runner who takes part is helping to raise crucial funds for hospice services across the Derbyshire Dales, North East Derbyshire and High Peak. The charities receive just 13% of their funding from the government and must raise the remaining amount through events like this one; local charity shops and donations.
Rachael Gee, fundraising and events coordinator, who organises the event, said: ‘The Chatsworth 10k is one of the biggest fundraising events in our calendar, and we are extremely excited to welcome hundreds of runners to Chatsworth later this year, to help raise another incredible amount of money to fund hospice care across our communities. Last year’s event raised a staggering £33,500, so we are looking forward to seeing if we can beat this target!
‘We’re so very grateful to everyone who supports the event in anyway, to ensure it is such a success and that as much money as possible is raised to directly support patient care – we could not do it without you.’
Rob Woodhead, Director at BRM Solicitors, commented: ‘We have worked with Helen’s Trust for several years, and we are delighted at the opportunity to be the sponsor of the 2022 Helen’s Trust Chatsworth 10k.
‘The Chatsworth 10k has become a sporting highlight in the local area, and we look forward to seeing runners tackle the challenging course and families enjoying the fun run.’
