Are you looking for a challenge? Would you like to raise funds for Sheffield Mencap & Gateway, making a big difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities in Sheffield?

We would love you to join us in the Sheffield 10k, running as part of a friendly and supportive team.

There is no entry fee to pay, we are just asking our runners to raise a minimum of £50 each in sponsorship. In return, you’ll get a Sheffield Mencap & Gateway running vest, a fundraising and training pack, and most importantly, you’ll have a great time!

Last year our amazing runners raised just over £5000 which has helped us to improve our facilities and the activities we provide for our members, as well as contributing to essential running costs.

This year, we would love to smash last year’s total, but we need your help!

You don’t have to be a regular runner, if you sign up now there’s plenty of time to start a light training programme to get you in the swing of things and ready to take on 10k in September. We’ve put together a training plan for the build up to the run and you’ll receive this once you sign up, as well as some useful fundraising tips.

We are also looking for marshalls to help us on the day. If you don’t fancy running but would still like to support us and be part of the brilliant atmosphere, then this could be for you!

The Sheffield 10k takes place on Sunday 22 September 2019. If you would like to run for Sheffield Mencap & Gateway or help us as a marshall, please email us on
