EAMA 10K on track to raise money for charity

South Norfolk Council are once again holding their popular EAMA 10K race. This year the race will be held virtually, with 25% of the race profits going towards Cancer Research.

Participants will be asked to complete the distance anytime and anywhere between 23 November and 29 November and will be required to record their time via a wearable fitness or sports tracker so that it can be uploaded to an online leader board.

South Norfolk Cabinet Member, Councillor Yvonne Bendle, said:

“Keeping fit and healthy is especially important during this time as it has been proven it can help protect people from the worst effects of Covid-19. We want to encourage as many of our residents as possible to keep active and stay safe and well, so we will be holding a virtual event so everyone can still take part.

“Whether you’re a seasoned runner keen to beat the competition or looking to challenge yourself with a long walk, then the EAMA 10K is for you.”

Each participant who completes the distance will receive a branded course medal. The Council is keen to see pictures of the runners in action and is asking participants to upload their photos to social media using #eama10k.

The Council has chosen to raise money for the charity Cancer Research in memory of staff member Paul Anderson who sadly passed away on 6 July 2020.
