Event information

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Kelda 10K around the picturesque Scammonden Reservoir in the Pennines. Look out for 2018 places, which are coming soon.

The Scammonden Reservoir spans the Deanshead Valley in the Pennines between Leeds and Manchester. By taking part in this 10k run, you'll get the chance to see the spectacular reservoir for yourself.

The route will run mainly on the reservoir's paths but also includes some gradients, steps and boardwalks.

All money raised from the event helps WaterAid bring clean water to 130,000 people in Ethiopia. Yorkshire Water and Kelda have committed to raising £1 million for projects in Ethiopia over five years – all funds and sponsorship raised from this event go towards achieving this target.

The event is open to all Kelda Group and contract partners, employees and family and friends, so please do encourage everyone you can to take part with you in 2018.
