New sponsors for town 10k



New sponsors for Newbury’s flagship 10km running race have been announced for 2018. The 10km event, formerly sponsored by Bayer, is now to be supported by Newbury-based IT services provider Roc Technologies, in association with not-for-profit, on-line charity matching platform The Good Exchange, and will be known as the Roc Newbury 10k supported by The Good Exchange. The race will take place on Sunday 27 May, and will once again be organised by Newbury Athletic Club (Newbury AC). Entries are likely to open around Christmas time. Roc Technologies Chief Executive, Matt Franklin, said: “I am absolutely delighted to be able to make this announcement. As a business we have worked hard to succeed in what we do and most importantly to be a part of the community here in Newbury. We’ve always tried to share our success not just with our people but with the town - so it makes great sense to us to support an event which has itself become a great success story for the town. “I’d like to thank Bayer for supporting the race so well in the last ten years, and am very much looking forward to continuing the great work they have done. We have plenty of good ideas for the race and a very enthusiastic team, so we will look forward to unveiling a few details in due course, and to seeing everyone on May 27 next year!” Ed Gairdner, The Good Exchange Chief Operating Officer said “The Good Exchange’s on-line matching platform has been designed to help local charities and good causes, using digital technologies to raise money faster and more effectively. Our support of the Roc Newbury 10K will help towards our goal of building a network of fundraisers and funders who work together. Race participants can donate and fundraise for their favourite local charities and good causes directly through the platform, if they wish, while fund-giving charitable trusts, foundations and local businesses can incentivise and boost fundraising through grants and match-funding offers.”
