#RunWithUs at this one-of-a-kind running event - Global Energy Race - taking place on 24th September across 38 cities in 21 countries and be part of the official attempt to break the world record for the race taking place in the most cities in one day. 

The UK’s edition of this global event will again be located in the beautiful Rother Valley Country Park in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, just a few miles from the New York Bakery Company – the host of the event and also the biggest bagel bakery in the world! 

Entrants may choose from a 10k, 5k or 3k distance, catering to competitive runners, families, kids, parents with strollers and those new to running. All participants will receive a collectable t-shirt and medal, while the fastest male and female finishers in the 10k race will win a trip for themselves and a companion to race in Global Energy Race 2018 in Rio*. 

More importantly, for every one kilometre run the New York Bakery Company will donate 1 bagel to local food banks, in partnership with The Trussell Trust - the UK Foodbank Network giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK. This means that if everyone collectively runs 10,000k the New York Bakery Company will donate 10,000 bagels. And because we like to add a little extra to everything we do we will DONATE your registration fee too! ** 

Sign up and be part of a global happening!
