Online registration for The Donna Louise’s 5k and 10k races closes this weekend on Sunday 12th May.

Runners wanting to sign up for either distance, which will be held at Trentham Gardens on Sunday 19th May, can register online at to ensure their place or call The Donna Louise on 01782 654444.

Runners of all ages and abilities can sign up for the 5k race, which is once around the lake at Trentham Gardens. Participants can run, hop or skip around the course in their own time and fancy dress is more than encouraged – there will even be prizes for the best costumes.

For more experienced runners there is a 10k distance (twice around the lake) which is recognised under the UK Athletics Certificate of Course. Race times for the 10k will be recorded using a time chip system with all results available by the following day at

Event Manager at The Donna Louise, Zoë Gregory, said, “It’s just over a week until our Family Fun Run and hundreds of people have already signed up. In addition to our runners, anyone wanting to cheer on their friends and family is also more than welcome.

“All runners and spectators must use the park & ride service from the south carpark at bet365 stadium, where they’ll receive a wristband which will give them entry to Trentham Gardens.”

The park & ride service will be provided by First Buses. The first buses will leave the bet365 stadium at 7.30am and will run every few minutes throughout the morning. After the race, buses will then return runners and spectators to the stadium, from 11am, with the last bus leaving Trentham Gardens at 2.30pm.

There will be limited places available to register on the day, but anyone wishing to sign up for either race is strongly recommended to register online before Sunday or call The Donna Louise on 01782 654444 to register by phone next week.
