Inspiring Fundraising For The McCain Yorkshire Coast 10k

McCain

An Event To Remember...

Corporate Communications Manager at McCain Foods, Sara Fisher, said: “The McCain Yorkshire Coast 10k and Family Fun Runs are for runners of all ages and abilities and we’re proud to have been supporting it since 2009.

“There’s a real mix of people that take part, aged from 13 to 81. We have people who are either trying to get a personal best and win the race, others who are doing it to raise money for charity and I know there’s even people who are doing it after having two or three knee replacements!”

Fundraising As Part Of The McCain 10k Run Scarborough

Local Scarborough AC runner Peter Barnard, bib number 1000, joggled (juggling whilst running) around the 10k. In 2011 he joggled (running whilst juggling 3 balls) the McCain Yorkshire Coast 10k road race - without any drops and in doing so he raised £600 for "Help for Heroes". With his lovely mum declining deeper into the clutches of Alzheimer's disease this year he felt compelled to do something unique to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society. So this year he joggled the same race without dropping a single ball!

Heidi Yorke & Sandra Habberley...

Both Heidi Yorke and Sandra Habberley have taken part in the run after knee replacements. Heidi is 42 years old and ran the 10k (and other races) to raise money and awareness for children’s eye cancer. At 21 months her nephew had a tumour and his eye removed, well done Heidi! Sandra Habberley ran the 10k after 2 knee replacements.  

 

 

Grace Dronsfield...

Grace Dronsfield has completed her 3rd 10k. She started running in May 2016 following her 3rd knee replacement in January 2016. She had to stop in July 2016 due to severe toe pain but hated not running so in February 2017 decided just to get on with it. She also suffers from M.E. and chronic depression but running gives her a release and the fantastic local running community has become like family.
