The route will see runners heading through Stretton and Rolleston, finishing at the Pirelli Stadium in Derby Road in the town. Burton Albion Community Trust, the charitable arm of Burton Albion FC is hosting the Brewers 10K to raise funds for its charity work, with hopes it will become an annual event.

It is hoped the race will raise the profile of Burton as a town, the Pirelli Stadium and provide a showcase event for the local and neighbouring residents, said a spokesperson for the event. The race route is suitable for beginners and intermediate runners, while also offering an opportunity for experienced runners to get a personal best, they said.
