Davies and Partners in Gloucester helped save and relaunch the Gloucester 10K run and the event took place on 13 July 2014 (the same day as our Teddy Bear’s Picnic). The event was a huge success with over 500 runners taking part. The Managing Partner of Davies and Partners’ Gloucester office, Nigel Tillott, recently presented us with a generous cheque for £2000, alongside Julie Cooke of Gloucester Quays (who organised the marshals for the run) and Gloucester Quays Rotary.
Following the race Nigel said, “Our aim was to create a community event run by the people of Gloucester for the people of Gloucester and to showcase the city to others. I believe that we achieved our aim with fantastic support from the people of Gloucester, showing that when we put our mind to something Gloucester can do it – and has lots to be proud of.” Nigel is hoping that next year’s race will be open to 750 runners.
