As an official sponsor of the race, which is held every July, the Specsavers store on Toll Gavel provided sponsored shirts complete with Specsavers logo which were handed out to participants on completion of the race.
Rob Reid, Chairman of Beverley AC, said;
“We are delighted to have Specsavers as sponsors of the Walkington 10k road race. It’s fantastic having such a well-known national brand supporting the race and it means that the club can carry on promoting well-managed, popular events locally, drawing people in from a wide area.”
Store director, Jeremy Beesley, said;
“The team at Beverley Specsavers is really pleased to be able to sponsor causes and clubs local to Beverley, and we’d really encourage those of all sporting levels to take part.”
“I’ve been a member of Beverley AC for a few years and was lucky to be given a club place running the London Marathon last year, so I’m really happy to be able to give something back and support this brilliant local event.”
Hundreds of runners took part in the 2018 Walkington 10K which was held in July with 515 runners completing the full course.
Following this year’s race, Mr Beesley also had the honour of handing out the medals to the fastest man, Jonathan Carter of Tipton Harriers and fastest lady, Emma Ballantyne of City of York AC.
