Baker Hughes 10K launches 30th anniversary appeal to crowdsource memories


Event organisers are calling on runners and spectators of the Baker Hughes 10K Running Festival to share photographs, memories and memorabilia.

In celebration of the 30th year of the Granite City’s favourite road race, registered charity Sport Aberdeen is hoping to host a visual timeline in the Race Village which incorporates an image for each year that the race has taken place.

The Baker Hughes 10k Running Festival will take place this year on Sunday 14th May.

Commenting, Sport Aberdeen’s Director of Business Development Jill Franks said:

“This is a particularly special year for the Baker Hughes 10k Running Festival, Aberdeen’s most popular road race. To mark the 30th anniversary of the race, we’re appealing to the many runners and fans to share photographs, memories and memorabilia.

“We’re hopeful that our crowdsourcing campaign will help us to tell an important visual history of how the race has developed over the years. We’ve set up a webpage where people can find more information on how to share images and send in any memorabilia for the exhibition.

“Each year we are overwhelmed by the support given to the event from the community. It’s an important part of Sport Aberdeen’s commitment to creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives through sport and physical activity.”

Please send all photographs and information of memorabilia to by Friday 21st April, all photographs will be credited.
