We are proud to announce that we are one of the official charity partners of this year’s Derby Ramathon - and we’re on the lookout for our team of ten runners and ten event marshals to help support us at this fantastic event.

Over the last 3 years we have had some incredible support from our friends and supporters who have signed up to take part in this popular event (also known as the Derby Half Marathon) - with their combined efforts raising well over £10,000 in sponsorship for our charity.

This year's Derbion Ramathon event is set to take place on Sunday 19th June 2022 at 9.15am and we need a team of ten runners to run and raise funds for Children First Derby.

The exciting 21K half marathon route starts and finishes in Iron Gate, Derby - taking in Pride Park Stadium, Alvaston Park and the stunning scenery of Elvaston Castle Country Park along the way.

The course is fast and flat and promises to deliver a vibrant atmosphere throughout.

There will be no entry fee for our team of runners, all we ask is that you try and raise a minimum of £50 for Children First Derby through sponsorship.

Our runners will each receive a free Children First Derby running shirt ahead of the race, in addition to the medal, goody bag and post-race treats they'll receive on the race day. And our Children First Derby team will be providing information and support to our runners throughout - both in the lead up to the event and on the race day itself.

In addition to our runners, we also need to find a team of ten event marshals to support and cheer on all the runners along the way!

If you are interested in joining our Ramathon race team or being an event marshal on the day to help support Children First Derby, or if you would like to request any further information, please email [email protected]

We welcome your support and would love you to join us.
