Flat 10k Gin Run

21 days ago by

​Over the bank holiday weekend, seven of the MorePeople team participated in the first inaugural 10k Gin Run hosted by Multum Gin Parvo and Stapleford Estate.

With over 200 participants, runners had the choice of a 5k or 10k route with multiple different 'gin stops' along the way. A warm-up was led by Rob Persani of Rutland and Stamford Sound, the first stop was roughly a kilometre into the route. Runners were welcomed to the 'MorePeople stop' with music by DJ Hey Mr Wilson and a gin cocktail made with Multum Gin Parvo Grape & Rutland Gooseberry gin. After the first stop, runners were able to pick up the pace and cover some distance before arriving at the second stop where a cocktail made of 'sea dragon' gin was handed to participants whilst listening to the music of 'The Houndogs' who are a local Rockability band.

For the 5k runners, it was time to race towards the finish, which was adjacent to the picturesque Stapleford Park Hotel and back towards the food vendors and main stage. The 10k runners made their way through two extra gin stops before crossing the finish. After the race spectators joined runners to enjoy the live music in the sunshine whilst eating and drinking from local food vendors.

​MorePeople would like to thank Multum Gin Parvo, Stapleford Estate, CS Ellis and all of the other sponsors for a great day and we look forward to participating again next year!
