Baker Hughes 10K Filling Up Fast

Baker Hughes 10K runners

North east runners feeling inspired by the upcoming Commonwealth Games can now sign up for one of the Granite City's most popular sporting events - the City of Aberdeen Baker Hughes 10K Running Festival. The 10K event is being organised by Sport Aberdeen and for the first time in its 28 year history now has its own unique identity in the form of a logo created by Grays School of Art student, Eilidh Dunsire.

As well as the 10K, registration is also available for the 10K wheelchair race, Schools 2K race and you can enter the Banks O' Dee Family Fun Run on race day. The 10k route is based around Aberdeen's Beach and Harbour area and gives participants spectacular views of the North Sea and the iconic Beach Ballroom.

Graham Morrison, events & projects officer at Sport Aberdeen, said: "We are delighted to have so many participants signed up already and would encourage others who would like to take part to sign up soon to avoid disappointment.

"The event has developed over the past few years and, with increased participation and activities throughout the day, we felt the event needed a unique identify as we developed the event in to a running festivall. We are delighted with our new identity."

Participants can raise money for any charity or organisation, including one from the group of official race charities such as CLAN, Children 1st, Inspire, Alzheimer Scotland, Cash for Kids, CLICSargent, Aberdeen Cyrenians, Befriend a Child, MacMillan Cancer Support and friends of ANCHOR.
