About Us

We're a small group of friends who work together each year to put on a 10k road race which has become a staple of the Derby running scene attracting 500 runners on the first Friday of July each year.

On 18th January 2006, we lost a close colleague and friend, Colin Potter, to an aggressive cancer. We were left saddened and with a passion to do something in his memory and to help fight this horrible disease. Out of this loss, the Colin Potter 10k was born! Originally designed as a "one-off" event, it proved to be a success and now is a constant on the Derby running scene.

To date, we've raised over £30,000 which we have donated to cancer charities.  We owe a lot to our runners and fundraisers for this tremendous effort.
