Head Start 5k and 10k is a UK Athletics accredited, chip-timed family fun-run which helps to raise funds for Neurocare part of Sheffield Hospitals Charity.

The pandemic has resulted in the charity being unable to stage the event for the last two years, missing out on vital fundraising, but on Sunday May 22 this is all set to change for

the charity as the event will return to Rother Valley Country Park.
