Runner beings wanted!

Katharine House Hospice is calling on local runners to take part in its fourth annual 10k run and Fun Run taking place at Shugborough on the 6th October.

Event Fundraiser James Lunney said:

“We are excited to be hosting the 10k run again this year and hope that supporters will enjoy the improvements we have for 2013. We are truly inspired by the support we receive as a local charity caring for people with progressive illnesses. This year due to popular demand, we’ve decided to include another 2k Fun Run and continue the superhero fancy dress theme on the Fun Run! – but this is purely optional”

Stafford Harriers running club have been offering their expertise in the organisation of the event to ensure a great run for runners of all abilities, whilst the Stafford Railway building society are kindly sponsoring the event for the fourth year running.

“Runners can help us by registering for the event at £10 (or £5 for the fun run) we are extremely grateful for the sponsorship support from individual runners as this really makes a difference to the Hospice Last year’s run saw over 500 people taking part in both the 10k and fun runs – and raised over £16,500 for the Hospice, thanks to the individual sponsorship and support of Stafford Railway Building Society
