Harmony Energy has been confirmed as the main sponsor of the Run Harrogate 10k 2022 - as details of the event are announced, including a Kids Fun Run.

The Harmony Energy Run Harrogate 10k will take place on Sunday 3rd July, set in the Crimple Valley area of the spa town. As a Yorkshire-based business, we are delighted to support the popular run as part of our continued ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) commitment.

Entries are now open for the event, which hopes to attract 1,000 runners for the 10km multi-terrain course starting and finishing at Harrogate Sports and Fitness Centre. All finishers will receive a medal and goody bag, with a prize fund worth over £1,500.

Children under 16 are also invited to join a Kids Fun Run before the main event, with a £3 entry fee payable on the day. All entry fees from the Kids Fun Run will be donated to CALM, the Campaign Against Living Miserably.

Adam Prentis from Harrogate Harriers & Athletics Club, which organises the Harmony Energy Run Harrogate 10k, said: “This event would not be possible without the support of local businesses and we are thrilled to announce Harmony Energy as the main sponsor of this year’s run.

“Entries are open and we have just over two months until the event, so we’re urging anybody interested to register their place online. It is our hope and intention to revert to pre-pandemic arrangements, with a mass start and prizes given out after the race, plus plenty of refreshments and family entertainment to make it a great day out.”

Peter Kavanagh, CEO of Harmony Energy, said: “As a Yorkshire company focused on delivering sustainable developments that promote wellbeing and support the wider environment, we’re proud to be supporting the Run Harrogate 10k and looking forward to getting involved this year.”
