Aegis backs popular Preston 10-mile road race

Aegis was incredibly proud to support this year’s Porsche Centre Preston 10-mile Road Race which took place on Sunday November 21.

The annual race is a major event in the Preston Harriers athletics club calendar and Aegis was one of several race sponsors.

We have a longstanding association with Preston Harriers which is one of the region’s oldest athletics clubs being founded in 1881.

The 10-mile Road Race has been popular event for over 35 years and sees a field of over 500 runners competing on a two-lap route that starts at Hutton Grammar School and finishes at Hutton Village Hall.

Adam Kaley, our commercial director, comments: “A huge well done to all those who took part at the weekend. Seeing all the runners take to the streets around Hutton every November has become a familiar and inspiring sight to many and it was great to see the event return this year. We are proud to lend our support to Preston Harriers and to be part of this great event.”

The 10-mile Road Race incorporates the Northern Athletics, Lancashire and National Fire Service 10-mile Road Championships and this year also offered the option of a five-mile race.

Preston Harriers is well known in the athletics world with athletes participating in road running, cross country, fell running, track and field, sportshall and triathlon events. The club welcomes people of all ages and abilities from beginner to elite athletes.
