Sharp's rewards thirsty fundraisers at the Runway Runaround
Cornwall's Air Ambulance Trust is planning a unique 10k running event THIS SUNDAY (25th March) at Newquay Cornwall Airport to raise funds for the Air Ambulance which this year is celebrating 25 years in operation! The run will take you the length of the runway, through the new hangar and over the helipad whilst raising vital funds to keep the helicopter flying! If 10k seems a bit daunting there is a 4k 'fun run' option for children and adults alike. It doesn't matter whether you are a budding Usain Bolt or you prefer watching him on the television - this race offers something for everyone. Both routes are extremely flat which is great if you are trying to set a new personal best time or it is the first time you have entered a race. The routes are also suitable for wheelchairs. Why not challenge your family or colleagues to the run and see who can get the best time? Or run the race dressed as a banana or three legged with a friend - anything and everything goes! With Cornwall Air Ambulance relying almost entirely on fundraising from individuals, groups and organisations they ask supporters to try and raise sponsorship for taking part and they can provide you with sponsorship forms or help you set up a Just Giving/Virgin Money Giving page online. There is a prize for the individual and the company who raises the most for the charity. Runners will be spoilt rotten at the finishing line with: · a well deserved pint of Sharp's beer (for those 18 and over)and a Rowes pasty · a goody bag · a sports massage to ease those aching calf muscles! · a commemorative medal · the first 200 runners to sign up will also be the lucky owners of a limited Runway Runaround t-shirt Why not make a day of it and bring your friends and family along to see you in action in the spectator viewing area where they can grab some food and enjoy cheering you on. Registration for the 10k run costs just £12 ahead of the day (£15 on the day) and the fun run costs just £5 ahead of the day (£6 on the day). For the elite runners amongst you, the race will be held under the Assoication of Running Club Rules - entry for the 10K costs just £10 for affiliated runners. Click on the link to enter online. See you at the start line!
