A BOSS of the superstore which sponsored this year's Chester 10k race is delighted by the success of the event.

In what now looks a strange sight in these coronavirus-impacted times, thousands took to the streets of Chester for the third annual event, sponsored by Aldi.

Those taking part helped to raise thousands of pounds for the event's chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.

A highlights video has been compiled showing those taking part and the support they had from the sidelines and through volunteering marshals.

Chester and District Standard:

Jon Wilson, regional managing director for Aldi, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Aldi Chester 10k event for the second year.

"Congratulations to everyone who took part in the challenge and thank you to all of the runners, volunteers, supporters and race organisers for helping to make the event such a huge success!

“The money raised from Sunday’s race will help to support the Teenage Cancer Trust, and help Aldi achieve our target of £5m over 5 years.

"By taking part in the Aldi Chester 10k, all the runners have helped the Teenage Cancer Trust in getting closer to its goal of ensuring that no young person has to brave cancer alone.

“We are incredibly proud to sponsor this event, and look forward to next year.”

Next year's event is scheduled for March 14. To sign up, and for more information, visit chester10k.co.uk.
