Council Leader’s good luck message to St Helens 10k participants

Article date - 26 February 2020

St Helens Council Leader David Baines has passed on a good luck message to the many runners set to take on Sunday’s St Helens 10k.
St Helens 10k

Now in its tenth year, the St Helens 10k was founded by the late, great Steve Prescott as he battled a rare form of abdominal cancer, and is considered to be one of the toughest 10k courses in the country - with a field of around 2,000 participants of all abilities looking to become a ‘North Road Survivor.’

Councillor Baines said: “Events like this demonstrate the wonderful community spirit we have here in St Helens.

“Steve Prescott was an inspiration to us all and his memory and legacy will continue to live on through events like this. It’s great to see so many people from across the borough and beyond sign-up to take part, many of whom will be raising money for charities close to their hearts.

“On behalf of St Helens Council, I’d like to wish these amazing people good luck and based on the fantastic support shown in previous years with hundreds of people lining the streets in all kinds of weather to cheer participants on, I’m sure they’ll enjoy the occasion.”
