It's not understating matters to say that without sponsorship a huge number of public races would not take place in the UK every year. Sponsorship is vital in funding events and making sure that the cost of entry is kept affordable for as many runners as possible.
The Wyvern 10K is very fortunate to have had very faithful sponsors over it's five years; some have been with us from the very start and others joining us later and then returning on subsequent occasions.
So a huge thanks goes to: HP Contracts, QualitySolicitors Knight Polson, Aspire Estate Agents, Up and Running, Caterlink, Fyffes and VW Taxation Ltd.
Please click on the image to find out more about each of our sponsors and the goods and services they provide. Many of them will have representative with us on the day of the event - some are even taking the plunge and running!
We are nearly there - and the weather looks like it might be kind.
It's important to make sure that when 10 am rolls round you're ready to go. To help you get those muscles warm and heart pumping Hayley will be back with us this year to lead a warm up at about 9.40 am. Make sure you pop along and get ready to run. If you are wondering what to expect, check out the film of last year's session.
Hayley will also be promoting a new sports nutrition drink Cdrive-7. Try a sample and see what else is in the range.
The Wyvern Steelpan Band are back with us this year. We really missed there uplifting tunes in 2015 but they will be there on the 10th July to get everyone into the Rio Carnival mood. Give them a wave or clap as you go by on your way out and as you head toward the finish.
They're back. We are delighted to announce that the fantastic Liberty Pride Cheerleaders will return this year - bringing all the pizzazz and cheers you need as you set out on and return from your run.
We are looking forward to seeing more of their great routines. They’ll be putting on a show for our finishers – hopefully out in the open air but, if wet, in the Big Top. Be sure to see it as you relax and recover from your run.
To find out more about the troupe click on their logo below.
If you have a place but know that you will not be able to run, we are offering a pre-event transfer service until Monday 4th July.
We have a waiting list of runners looking for places and we would urge you not to simply give your number to someone else; it invalidates the insurance and risks their disqualification. It might also result in someone wrongly winning a prize in a particular age/gender category.
There is a fee of £5 for this transfer service and the exchange of money between you and your recipient will have to be arranged by yourselves - we cannot accept responsibility for that transaction.
Please contact Sport Systems for further details.
A ten-strong team of staff and parents from The King’s School in Allington Lane are taking up the Wyvern 10K challenge for the first time this year.They have signed up to inspire students, challenge themselves to train and achieve, what for many of them, is a new goal and to raise money for their nominated charities.
The funds they raise will go towards two charities, Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and Equip, a charity set up by the former head teacher to build and support schooling and vocational education in Rwanda in Africa.
Senior pupils at The Kings School have the opportunity to go out to Rwanda and experience first-hand the work that is being done to rebuild the country in the wake of the genocide 20 years ago. They learn about the history of the genocide and play a part visiting and teaching in schools close to the Kingdom School which Equip has helped to build and continues to support.
Member of staff and parent Dasha Murdock suggested the run and has been training: ‘We wanted to join with our community for a fun event and raise some money for these two wonderful charities which do great work, CAP, here in the UK and Equip over in Rwanda.’ Teacher and team member Lou Larkum, an experienced runner, said: ‘I would love our team to aim high… perhaps to run the annual CAP half-marathon next year!’
Those of you that have run the Wyvern 10K before may well have noticed that when the year is even we have our splendid Big Top tent out on the school field. Now we'd love to claim we get it in for the race but in actual fact it is there because it houses the bi-annual Wyvern Arts Festival.
This year's festival kicks of on Thursday 7th of July and runs through to Thursday 14th July. There is something for everyone showcasing the talents of the whole community in music, drama, dance and art.

Tickets for the event will be available during the 10K event in the Big Top.
Our blog will keep you up to date with all the developing details of the event
