Alton Towers 10k

Join #TeamMHUK this November. Run 10k, and have a great day out at the UK’s largest theme park!

Looking for a 10k this November and access to Alton Towers?!

Take on a chip timed 10k, and earn yourself a unique themed medal before enjoying the incredible rides at the park. What. A. Day.

*FREE ride access after the race is included in your entry!

The route- An undulating 10k loop within the iconic Alton Towers resort. Starting and finishing outside the Towers, the route begins with a loop of the Dark Forest, which includes the rides TH13TEEN and Rita.

The route then passes in front of the Towers and into X-Sector around Oblivion and the Smiler, before going past the lake into CBeebies Land, where you’ll meet characters like the Teletubbies!

You’ll then pass Mutiny Bay (and some angry pirates) and through Katanga Canyon, before making your way down to Nemesis. You’ll then leave the resort for a section around the car parks and internal road network, before turning back into the resort at Galactica, and into the creepy Haunted Hollow. A final loop around the Dark Forest brings you back to the Towers for the finish. Then it’s time to enjoy all the rides!

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

Read what some of our fundraisers have to say.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

Louise Greenwood,

"I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go!"

Helen Taylor

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"
