Tom from Tom & Claire runs the Central Health Derby 10k



We need you to show your support for Tom from Tom & Claire, and our charity Global's Make Some Noise, as he attempts to run the Central Health Derby 10k!

Starting and finishing at Pride Park Stadium on Sunday 15th April, taking in Derby city centre's best known landmarks, it's going to be a real challenge for Tom.

He'll be the first to admit he's not built for long-distance running - you're definitely more likely to find him on FIFA, than a treadmill - he needs all the support he can get!

Support Tom by donating to Global's Make Some Noise now!

Derby 10k Spider Island Tom

Track how Tom's 'Couch To 10k' training has gone below, but if he hates running so much, why's he doing it!?

Tom: "The death of someone very close to us is probably the hardest thing to deal with as an adult, but it must be so much tougher as a kid. That's where the Children's Bereavement Centre comes in - they're just one of the amazing projects supported by Global's Make Some Noise."
