Kent law firm Furley Page has been announced as the new headline sponsor of The Whitstable 10k, which will be held on Early May Bank Holiday (Monday 2 May 2022).
Organised by Canterbury Harriers running club in partnership with Sporting Events UK, the Whitstable 10k is now in its 22nd year. The popular running race attracts several thousand entries each year and is known for producing fast times and plenty of ‘personal bests’ along the mainly flat seafront course.
Joshua Williams, a Partner based at Furley Page’s Whitstable office, said: “As a regional solicitors’ firm with an office in Whitstable, it is wonderful that Furley Page will be the lead sponsor of the event for the first time this year. The Whitstable 10k is a uniquely popular seaside event which promotes health and wellbeing, while attracting thousands of visitors to the town over the Bank Holiday.”
Entries for The Furley Page Whitstable 10k are open from Monday 10 January and prospective competitors can register to take part by visiting the website: https://www.sportingeventsuk.com/enter-an-event/the-whitstable-10k
Prizes will be awarded for the top three men and women, the best three-person team, and the best veteran in a variety of age categories, while all finishers will receive a T-shirt and a medal as mementoes.
Melanie Christodoulou is an Associate at Furley Page and Chair of Canterbury Harriers. She said: “Canterbury Harriers has been presenting the event for many years and the club is delighted to announce Furley Page as headline sponsor for 2022. I know we have plenty of keen runners at the firm and, following the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, I’m sure we are all looking forward to getting back on the track for some healthy competition!”
