Tottenham’s newest 10k run is set to take place on Saturday 15th June at 9am.

Organised by The Engine Room, this is the second year the Engine Run has taken place, following 2018’s success.

The run is supported by local developer Anthology London and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, including Club Ambassador Gary Mabbutt who has personally promoted it via YouTube.

Starting from The Engine Room (Lebus Street N17 9FU), the run is a flat off-road route from Hale Village encompassing two laps around Tottenham Marshes.

The Engine Room is a new community facility located at the heart of the award-winning Hale Village. It serves the community, providing a community centre, café and nursery, which are available to everyone. It also hires out rooms for various community events.

The organisation is encouraging participants to raise £50 to enter, which will support the range of activities The Engine Room provides for the local community. These include: Children’s Messy Play and its after school activities, providing art and music clubs for primary children and the COMPACT youth programme, which helps keep 14-18 year olds away from crime, providing them with a path to a brighter future.

This year, The Engine Room aims to raise £25,000, which will help support these vital services. The Engine Room will provide every entrant with a special medal and goodie bag.

Andrew Johnston, Operations Manager at The Engine Room said:

“We are delighted to be holding our second annual Engine Run. An event such as this brings our community together, and everyone has a lot of fun whilst taking steps to lead a healthier lifestyle.

“The services we provide supports the entire community. The money raised will help us maintain these vital services to ensure we can continue supporting children and young adults, who are the future of Tottenham.

“We would like to thank both Anthology and Tottenham Hotspur Football Club for their support. The contribution they have made has been invaluable. They have provided us with volunteers and resources, which will make the event a fantastic success.

“Due to great interest, we don’t have many spaces left for entrants, and would urge anyone interested to enter today.”

Chris Powell, Anthology’s Project Director at Hale Works said:

“The Engine Room is a fantastic community asset, which has provided so many benefits for the local area. At Anthology, we pride ourselves in engaging with the communities which make London the greatest city in the world.

“Tottenham Hale is a very close-knit community, and organisations such as The Engine Room play a key part in its success.

“We are looking forward to the Engine Run, and you may even spot some of our own Anthologists taking part.”

Gary Mabbutt, Ambassador for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club said:

“It’s very important that we take part in these events with the community, which provides fun for all. Organisations, such as The Engine Room are so important to the area, and provide younger people a place to go which feels like home.”

Due to great interest we don’t have many spaces left for entrants but you can book online at www.entrycentral.com/theenginerun until this Friday 7th June 2019.
