Andy Wood, CEO of Adnams, said: “The entire Adnams team and myself send huge congratulations to all those who took part in this year’s 10k.

“Yet again, it was a sell-out race, with 900 entrants – many of whom travelled from quite some way to take part, such is the popularity of this unique Southwold event.

Lowestoft Journal:

“As a company, we’re incredibly proud of the legacy of this wonderful race, not only because it sees so many smiling faces outside, getting active and doing something great for their wellbeing, but because its profits go directly to the Adnams Community Trust, which in turn supports so many fabulous local causes.

“I’m very grateful to the various Adnams staff members who were involved in the organisation of the race, and equally to the Suffolk community, for taking part, or just turning up to cheer others on. Events like this really show the county’s spirit at its best!”.

Adnams 10k has been taking place for 15 years – even being held virtually during Covid – and has helped to raise thousands of pounds for good causes.
