The President’s Run
After last year’s Cheltenham Half I said never again. So here I am again, prepared to say never again again. I’ll be setting off on Sunday at 9am-ish to try and finish at 11am-ish. I am targetting a better time than last year’s 2 hours 6 minutes, but this year I won’t have Warren to drag me round – I’m going solo.
Please think about sponsoring – all money raised will go to the Bursary Fund.
Thanks – Adam

There will be a 1K route and a 5K route. Registration begins in the park from 9:30am and the run starts at 10:15am on December 8th.
Registration fees: Blue Badge holders/wheelchairs free, Under 16s £4, Adults £8 and Teams of 4 £20. The money will be used to buy medals and pay for the set up costs for the event – any funds left over will be donated to local charities.
