Students, staff, alumni and friends of Sheffield’s two universities will be taking part in the Sheffield Varsity 10k race at Don Valley on Sunday 10 March, one of the big events in the annual students’ sporting challenge. There'll even be a special mascots’ race, headed by St Luke’s own Digs the Dog!
Last year’s race raised almost £4,000 for the hospice, and organisers are hoping that this year’s event will be an even bigger success.
"We're really excited,” said Varsity representative Alison Gardner. “The race is now part of the official Varsity programme and we have students, staff and alumni from beginners to experienced runners taking part to bring home the winner’s trophy to their University.
“We also have an elite team of students from each University competing for a Varsity point, so it should be a very exciting race! The event is supporting St Luke's Hospice too, so we hope both the runners and their supporters will help to raise lots of money for this fantastic Sheffield charity”.
