Northallerton 10k

The Kerfoot Group

The Kerfoot Group was delighted to sponsor & support a fantastic new event in Northallerton over the bank holiday weekend. Northallerton hosted its very first 10K race, starting and finishing on the high street. The event attracted thousands of spectators around the course and 600 runners on the day.

Chief race organiser, our very own Thomas Kerfoot was delighted with the response and turnout which raised £7,000 for local charity Pendragon Community Trust. The money will go towards the charities new sensory centre that opens this July.

As for runners within the Group, we had a solid effort from Karlene Scott (Treasury) coming in 228th overall with a time of 00:55:29, she was the 62nd fastest woman on the course. Bart Schofield (KPO) championed the group with a solid time of 00:48:26, coming 114 overall. Both superb efforts.

Other members of The Kerfoot Group provided their support as marshals on the day, including Anthony Lawrence, Alison Wilkinson, Paul Stoddart, Lauren Collinson & Lisa McCorrie. All of which did a sterling job, it provided exhausting for Anthony (see attached image)!

The race is due to be repeated next year on the 28th may 2017 and Thomas & his team hopes to attract 1,000 runners. If you fancy signing up, please keep an eye on www.pendragon-ct.org for entry details.
