Sunday 2nd April
Silksworth Community Pool, Tennis and Wellness Centre
This year’s Sanlam Go Dad Run will take place in Sunderland on Sunday 2nd April at the Silksworth Community Pool, Tennis and Wellness Centre, in partnership with sports and leisure operator Everyone Active.
Go Dad Run is series of male only 5K and 10K runs to raise awareness of important men’s health issues and funds for our five partner charities. This will be the second year that the event has been hosted in the city and it will be the first of a series of events taking place around different parts of the country.
Olympic silver medalist Colin Jackson will take part in the event himself, alongside fellow world champion athlete Jamie Baulch and Sunderland footballing legend Kevin Ball. They’ll also be putting the medals around the necks of the runners as they cross the finishing line.
The event was created by Colin Jackson in 2013 after two of his uncles developed prostate cancer and sadly only the one who openly discussed his condition, and sought treatment, survived.
