POWERMAN UK returns to Sherborne on Sunday May 11th and boasts a field of elite athletes, Olympic Champions and Septuagenarians amongst the hundreds of other athletes taking part.

POWERMAN UK is a run bike run event and will be offered over three different distances, the Sprint (5k run – 30k bike and 5k run), The Classic (10-60-10) and the Long (10-120-20). The event starts at 8am from the Terrace Playing fields in Sherborne.

Dame Kelly Holmes, two time Olympic champion will be taking part in the Sprint race after a spirited campaign by the town of Sherborne to bring her to the race. The Twitter led campaign was promoted by Vineyards Wine shop and has seen the double Olympic Champion take them up on their offer to race.

In the Elite race, Matt Moorhouse will be back to defend his title and Catherine Faux will be putting up a strong showing fresh from her Top Age Group female overall at the IRONMAN World Championships in Hawaii.

Richard Wallace Race Director of POWERMAN UK comments: “It’s great to bring such a diverse field of athletes to Sherborne. We know that the people of Sherborne will be out in force to welcome and encourage every athlete from start to finish.”

POWERMAN UK is organised by Events Crew, a local Event management and Logistics Company with deep roots in Sherborne and responsible for Sherborne Castle Fireworks, amongst their other events.

Brent Mitchell, Director of Events Crew was pleased to bring the event to Sherborne: “ As a local man, it was great to bring this event to Sherborne. Sherborne is a warm and welcoming town and has a great history of supporting sporting events. I am sure that the people will be out in force to welcome the athletes.”

POWERMAN UK starts at 8am from the Terrace Playing Fields with the finishers coming in from 9.30 all the way through to 3pm. There will be plenty of action in the town to watch and a number of local businesses will be offering special deals for the athletes and supporters throughout the day.
