Video: hundreds compete in Berkeley 10K race


More than 250 runners took part in Sunday’s Berkeley 10K race, organised by Dursley Running Club.

Race Director John Rodgers told Stroud Times: “Today’s race is a traditional race, run probably for the past 20 years. It’s slightly different to a lot of races in that most of the proceeds are given to local charities which this year are Longfield Hospice and Read with Me, a reading charity for schools in Gloucestershire.”

The race started and finished at the former Berkeley Power Station site, and facilities were donated free of charge by SGS College Berkeley Green. “We are indebted to the college who give their facilities free of charge, which enables us to give more money to the charities,” added Mr Rodgers.
