On 11th July 2010 twelve runners participated in the British 10k Run in London in the aid of ERA-UK�s projects in Eritrea. However, a thirteen runner, Niyat Samuel was unable to run on the day due to ill health and ERA-UK wishes her a speedy recovery.

One of the runners, Juliet, was six months pregnant and she celebrated her engagement to another runner, Alan, on the day. ERA-UK would like to congratulate the happy couple on their engagement. We also would like to thank Iyassu Yohannes, who runs every year for the last 4 years in support of our causes. All runners finished in good health and it took them between 45 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes.

After the race, all the runners and their friends and family, and members of trustees directors of ERA-UK had an Eritrean style picnic at St. James Park. The foods and drinks were donated by Fiori Belay as a show of her support to ERA-UK�s activities. ERA-UK would like to take this opportunity to thank Fiori for her unreserved support she has shown over the past years.

The amount the runners wanted to raise was £3600. So far between them they have raised [£waiting to get the final figure]. We would like to thank to everyone who supported our runners by sponsoring them and we asked them to continue their support for ERA-UK in future.
