Harrogate 10k to return to Crimple Valley this summer

The annual Harmony Energy Run Harrogate 10k is set to return this summer, open to runners of all ages and abilities.

Harrogate 10k to return to Crimple Valley this summer The annual Harmony Energy Run Harrogate 10k is set to return this summer. Participants will run the route through Crimple Valley on Sunday 30th June. Last year almost 1,000 runners took part, with the start and finish taking place at the Harrogate Sports and Fitness Centre. The 10k and Junior Fun Run follows an undulating route that is approximately 70% tarmac road, with the rest on good footpaths. Event organisers Harrogate Harriers are preparing for this year’s event with dozens of volunteers and partners ensuring the run will accommodate runners of all levels.

Harrogate Harriers committee member Issie Row said:

“Last year was a brilliant success and we’re excited that this year will be an even bigger event filled with food, drink and music. “We’re also bringing back bespoke medals to celebrate runners completing this great achievement.”
Race Director Mark Seymour said:
“We are conscious that with the cost of living crisis, we need to make our event great value, which is why with the help of Harmony Energy we have kept our entry prices at the same level as last year, and indeed the year before!”
Peter Kavanagh, CEO of Harmony Energy, said:
“It’s a delight supporting this brilliant local event. “It’s our 3rd year sponsoring, and each year we’ve seen more people take part and we know it will be another great event come June. “I want to wish all those participating the best of luck.”
