What’s Included

Medal & T-Shirt for all finisher


Every year the GPW Recruitment St Helens 10K is overwhelmed with support, whether it’s spectating, marshalling, bag-packing or manning the famous GPW Recruitment Water Station.

There is a large team on the day who give up their time to help us ensure everything goes above and beyond the expectation of each runner.

The Steve Prescott Foundation rely on all those involved to make the St Helens 10K one of most sought after and best 10K running events in the UK, which cements their indispensability to the event.

Volunteers range from marshals around the course, at the start and finish line who direct runners and keeping the route safe for all our runners. There is also a team managing the bag drop inside the Totally Wicked Stadium, the volunteers providing water at the water stations and of course the spectators who provide that ‘extra gear’ when runners are tackling some of the more difficult parts of the race.

Some runners require headphones to get themselves “in the zone”, if that’s you, it’s absolutely fine as the St Helens 10K Run takes place on full road closures. Although we have many offerings of live music on route to keep you entertained, as well as a tremendous amount of support from spectators and fellow runners. It’s one of the things our previous North Road Survivor’s like the most about our race.
