LCP to sponsor DK10k race03/04/2017
Leading commercial property firm LCP has signed up to be main sponsor of the Dudley Kingswinford Running Club’s 10k road race for the third consecutive year.
The Gold Standard annual race, which takes place on the evening of Wednesday, May 3, has a capacity of 1,100 runners and is now one of the biggest midweek road races in the Midlands
The race, which was launched in 1986 by Dick Blackburn, former chairman and founder of the running club, will also promote much-needed fundraising for Action Heart, a local charity that provides rehabilitation for heart surgery patients and individuals who have suffered a heart attack.
Andrew Preston, industrial portfolio manager at LCP, who has organised a team of 12 runners from the company, said it was keen to support the event again this year.
“The DK 10k is a really well-supported road race that we are only too pleased to sponsor again,” he said. “We have a running club at LCP, so are looking forward to entering a team of runners.”
Thanking LCP for its support, race organiser Gary Bonner said: “We’re very grateful for LCP’s support yet again. Corporate sponsorship is crucial for us because it ensures we have the resources in place to organise the race.
“Anyone wishing to take part should sign up for the event now. It is always a great race and we are looking forward to staging it again this year.”
