Central Health Derby 10K Post Race Report


2017 delivered another fantastic Central Health Derby 10K, and we were very busy long past the race finishing providing expert sports massages!

Remember, your Derby 10K entry entitles you to 20% off your first physiotherapy, podiatry or osteopathy treatment at Central Health and 10% off treatments thereafter until the end of 2017!

3,208 runners crossed the Central Health Derby 10K finish line and hundreds more took part in the 3K fun run.

The thousands of spectators who turned out made all the difference on race day, and the overwhelming feedback we’ve had this year shows how fantastic the Central Health Derby 10K atmosphere is, and we have you to thank for that!

Remaining the city’s largest mass participation event, all proceeds raised by race organisers, Sporting Futures go directly back into the charitable work they deliver in Derby itself and across Derbyshire. Your entries and many kind donations allow them to carry on providing so many services across Derbyshire for young people most in need of them.
