The UK’s edition of this global event will again be located at the scenic Rother Valley Country Park in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, just a few miles away from one of New York Bakery Company’s factory locations – New York Bakery Company are the hosts 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 bagels, 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 2019 in Madrid*.

More importantly, for every, single 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 7,500kms the New York Bakery Company will donate 7,500 bagels. And because we like to add a little extra value to everything we do, we will DONATE your registration fee too!* Meaning that this year, the only fee to enter is a small donation to charity! **
