Registration for Kelda 10k now up and running

Enthusiastic runners are being encouraged to sign up to the Kelda 10k, which will take place around Scammonden Reservoir on Saturday 2 September 2017.

The event, run in support of WaterAid, is now its fifth year, having raised £15,000 in the previous four years.

Anne Reed, lead advisor for sustainability at Yorkshire Water said: "This is just one initiative in our award-winning programme of fundraising for WaterAid.

“Last year, 150 runners raced around the reservoir and, with the increasing popularity of running, we know the race is a great way for people to both get fit and do something good for charity.” 

Major improvements have recently been completed at Scammonden, the iconic reservoir between junctions 22 and 23 of the M62, and it is now one of our most popular reservoirs. This event will give runners the chance to experience these improvements first hand and check out exactly what Scammonden has to offer. 

The route is perfect for both new and experienced runners, following the paths around the site but also including some slight gradients, steps and board walks. 

The event just £15 to enter and all money raised will help WaterAid bring clean water and sanitation to 130,000 people across 20 towns in Ethiopia. 

To register visit the WaterAid website.
