Just under 4,000 runners were under starter's orders for the 10k race at the iPro Stadium in Derby on Sunday, March 19. The event is organised by Sporting Futures in conjunction with the University of Derby and Derby City Council.

Going from strength to strength
Jog Derbyshire Coordinator for the south of Derbyshire, Jo Wharton-Howett said:
"It was wonderful to see so many Jog Derbyshire members out in force at this year's Derby 10k. As the project continues to go from strength to strength, the large increase in our numbers was very evident on Sunday.
It was a fantastic opportunity for the Jog Derbyshire team to get to meet and chat with lots of our members; to hear about their individual fitness journeys and how for many, joining a Jog Derbyshire group has played a big part in supporting them."
Jog Derbyshire Coordinator for the north of the county, Michelle Simmons said:
"Jog Derbyshire wouldn't exist without our brilliant leaders and this year they've excelled themselves, some even putting on additional groups to work towards the Derby 10k.
It is great to be a part of many people's first experience of such an event and even better to catch up with our leaders and meet the individuals who form the groups. It was great to hear their stories and be part of their running adventure for the day."
