Team of happy runners

We are looking for 40 runners to join Team Treetops as entries open into the ever-popular Derby 10k for 2024.

We have 40 places available in the annual event - to help celebrate our 40th birthday. Runners can sign up for just £5, making a considerable saving on the event fee.

Derby 10k 2024

The Derby 10k will take place on Sunday, 24 March. The course will begin and end at Pride Park Stadium – the home of Derby County Football Club – taking in the sights of the city centre.

Those running for Treetops Hospice will be issued with a branded running tech-shirt, fundraising support and resources. You will even be met with homemade cake at the finishing line!

Claire Mathias, Treetops Relationships Manager for Challenge Events, explained more:

The Derby 10k is an event we look forward to every year at Treetops Hospice. It’s such an iconic local race, with a great atmosphere and suitable for runners of all abilities.

“With over 5,000 participants every year, it’s really popular. We know there’ll be people starting to sign up right now. We’d love them to consider running for their local hospice.

Supporting local patients and families

“Team Treetops runners have really low sign-up costs and a realistic fundraising target. The proceeds from their fundraising efforts will be helping to care for local patients and their families across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.”

Team Treetops runners are being asked to raise a minimum of £108 which can help a local patient at the very end of life to receive one night of Hospice at Home nursing care.
