Is the Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10k for you?
Everyone agrees that the 10k is one of the most enjoyable events ever staged in Middlesbrough. It brings together serious athletes, fun-runners, fundraisers and families in an atmosphere of festival and friendship.
In Middlesbrough we encourage people to take up healthier lifestyles and the 10k has been a springboard, as it encourages more people to be more active. For many of the runners irrespective of their age or fitness level, the Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10k has been their first ever race.
The race was introduced in 2005 and was an immediate success, and since 2006 is included in the North East road race series, which was quite remarkable after only one year.
Having built on the initial success, the race continues to grow and for 2008 the race attracted over 3,000 entries.
