Thank you to everyone who made this year’s 10th anniversary BrathayRunning events such a huge success. These events would not be possible without the support of volunteers, sponsors, donors and the local community – we are very grateful for all contributions that help to deliver a safe and enjoyable day for everyone.

We hope all runners, spectators and visitors to the Family Fun Day had an enjoyable and inspirational day. We were lucky with the weather which really helped us to create a special atmosphere for this celebration of 10 years of Brathay Running events and 70 years of changing young people’s lives.

The introduction of the Brathay Half and more junior races were well received by all who took part. We’re sure we can now further develop these events which, together with the Marathon and Brathay 10in10, will become a true festival of running for all ages and abilities in future years.

“I just wanted to send a quick email to congratulate you on putting on a superb event yesterday. Your marshals were great and a credit to the event. The support we received out on the course from the marshals and general public was fantastic. Keep up the good work – I look forward to running the Brathay Half again in the future.” Ashley Langton
