Great turn out for 10K Charity race

On your marks……

On the morning of Sunday 27th March over 20 members of staff participated in a charity Welshpool 10k race. It was a remarkable turn out from the team who attended the event, over 800 runners took part in total. The route started in Welshpool at the Town Hall, through the breath-taking Powis Castle grounds and finished back at the Town Hall in Welshpool.

Organised by Adrenaline Sporting Events, the Welshpool 10k was held at the third time of asking after two Covid-enforced cancelled events.

“Today has been a long time coming,” said lead organiser, Alan Lewis. “There was a tremendous field of competitors supported by a great crowd along the way so I couldn’t be happier. Thank-you to everyone who helped make this such a special day.

Paralympic legend Jim Roberts MBE started the race which was won by Team Wales marathon star Andy Davies, of Forden, in a time of 32 minutes 33 seconds

Darren Jarman, Managing Director at Lowfield Timber Frames who came 1st place in his age category said “We were proud to be sponsoring the local Welshpool 10k race in collaboration with Adrenaline Sporting Events. As a group we employ over 150 staff from our headquarters in Marton, just outside Welshpool. It’s really important for us to give something back to the community, whilst also raising money for a great cause. It’s been great encouraging members of staff to take up the challenge and whilst many were apprehensive before the race, everyone really enjoyed themselves and many are already talking about their next race!

This event will then be followed by a series of other events throughout the year. Further details about the upcoming events will be promoted on our social media closer to the dates”

S J Roberts Construction and Lowfield Timber Frames, part of the S J Roberts Group, will be fundraising throughout 2022 for Shropshire Mental Health Support, a mental health charity based in Shrewsbury that supports individuals across Shropshire.

Thank you to everyone who supported us, we are pleased to have raised £1550 so far.
