Discover your city in a new light with the Smooth Sunrise City 5k

Half past five in the morning – a time associated with nothing but slumber. However, this summer, hundreds of people will be turning Nottingham, Leicester and Derby purple for the Smooth Sunrise City 5k.

A pathway to discovering your city in a new light, this non-competitive 5k run or walk is a celebration of family, health and exercise, encouraging everyone, regardless of running ability, to hit the streets in the light of the morning.

Event Director, Nik Emmonds said: “We’re really looking forward to turning the streets of the East Midlands purple this June.

“We have three fantastic routes for everyone to enjoy that incorporate iconic local landmarks across the three cities.

“The support of the local councils a big factor in the event and shows again that the cities are committed to hosting unique, world class events that the residents can enjoy.  We hope as many people as possible will become part of the family and join us this summer.”

Phil Hudson, Head of Commercial at Smooth East Midlands said: “Smooth Radio East Midlands is delighted to be partnering with the Sunrise City 5K to raise money for Smooth’s charity Global’s Make Some Noise.

“It’s an amazing event and we’re very pleased to give our listeners the opportunity to see the East Midlands in a different light, running through the cities as they wakes up!”

Sunrise City 5k costs £15 to enter, with all participants receiving a superb medal and technical t-shirt on the day.

So whether you’re looking to dust off the cobwebs before work, taking your dog for a morning walk, or just fancy a stroll, we want to see you there wearing your purple tee in the sun (we hope, although wet weather would give us the opportunity for a Purple Rain pun!).
