Run For All is thrilled to announce a partnership with Middlesbrough Council and Everyone Active to organise the Asda Foundation Middlesbrough 10k – formerly the Tees Pride 10k – and the Ali Brownlee Riverside Run 5k.

Both the 10k on 1st September and 5k on 30th June will be run on the same routes as previous years, meaning the Ali Brownlee Riverside Run will continue to start outside and finish inside Middlesbrough F.C’s Riverside Stadium – entries are now open at runforall.com/events/10k/middlesbrough-10k/

“We’re delighted that Run For All has agreed to help us grow the Middlesbrough 10k and Ali Brownlee Riverside Run. We know they’ll do the events justice by honouring the heritage of both and ensuring we continue to support local charities as much as possible,” said Cllr Lewis Young, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive member with responsibility for sports development.

Paul Ayre, the Middlesbrough contract manager for Everyone Active, added: “We’re really excited about this opportunity to work with the great team at Run For All, who are considered to be one of the UK’s leading providers when it comes to organising and hosting running events.

“The Middlesbrough 10k and Ali Brownlee Riverside Run are hugely popular and well-established annual events for the Middlesbrough local community and over the last three years, Everyone Active has had the privilege to manage both.

“Something we have been keen to do, however, is grow them and make them even more successful. By joining forces with Run For All, we have got a fantastic opportunity to do that in the years to come.”

Run For All is a not for profit company that is a legacy of the late charity fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE, who despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer completed a series of incredible endurance challenges.
