Great Grimsby 10K returns for seventh year to raise money for fantastic local causes


The Orsted Great Grimsby 10K returned today for its seventh year, with runners braving the wind and rain to run and raise money for local causes.

Thousands of runners gathered at Grimsby Town Hall where the race started, before heading down Scartho Road, Louth Road and Peaks Parkway, before turning onto Welholme Road to finish in the scenic People’s Park.

From each race entry, £1 was donated to a fund shared by local charities. This year, the seven charities chosen to receive the funds were Horizon Youth Zone, Harbor Place, A Platform To Talk, The Gardiner Hill Project, Mind, Doorstep and RNLI.

William Strangeway took first place in the annual race – organized by Tape2Tape Events. Laura Smith was the first woman to cross the finish line, followed by Lindsay Skinner.

Neil and Nicola Pattison, Race Directors of Tape2Tape, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year by hosting the fantastic Ørsted Great Grimsby 10k. And what better way to come together as a community and connect with your neighbors and chat over the garden fence?

“And with activities, stalls and music, People’s Park will be the perfect place for family and friends to have fun.”

Emma Toulson, Senior Stakeholder Relations Advisor at Ørsted, added: “The race is a great place for the community of Grimsby to come together to celebrate. Good luck to all runners and as a runner myself I know how important the supporters are, every cheer and applause helps make the event what it is.
