It’s that time again, the 12th annual East Grinstead 10k will be taking place this October!
We’re absolutely over-the-moon that the East Grinstead Runners have chosen Jigsaw (South East) to be one of three charities the event will raise money for. We are incredibly grateful for their support!
Could you run 10k for Jigsaw?
Whether it’s your first 10k or you’re an experienced runner, this brilliant event caters for all abilities come rain or shine!
This exciting community event is organised and supported by volunteers from East Grinstead Runners, surrounding clubs and amazing charities (including Jigsaw!). We’ll be there to cheer you on, no matter what the weather. The first 7km is off-road on well-surfaced bridleways of the worth way and the final 3km are on residential roads, with a water station at 5km mark.
The race is dedicated to the memory of Andy Ripley OBE, English rugby union international, an active East Grinstead sportsman and former member of both EGAC and EGTC, who died from prostate cancer in 2010.
Just by entering, you’ll be helping to raise money for Jigsaw (South East), East Grinstead Lions and Prostate Cancer UK.
You can support us further by getting sponsored to run for Jigsaw (South East)! Set up your fundraising page here and with your support we can help more local children and young people coping with bereavement.
