Are you community minded?
Has the Fun Run ever helped you or your family’s activities?
Have you ever taken part or enjoyed the Fun Run?
Are you able to run for 4.6 miles?
Can you attract your own supporters and raise £100?
If YES then the Fun Run and the community NEEDS YOU!
In spite of the extraordinary situation we are all facing, we are eager to demonstrate our resolve to help those organisations and charities that were due to benefit from this year’s event. We also want to ensure that the spirit of this annual community event is maintained in its 35th year and so add to the amazing £468,000 that the event has donated to the local community over the years.
So we plan to hold a very special event on SUNDAY 4th October: the SAWSTON COMMUNITY FUN RUN CHALLENGE EVENT. It will comply with all the guidelines of social distancing etc and will entail us having just one hundred runners, going off at ten second intervals.
Who do we need? The primary purpose is for every entrant to raise £100 as that will ensure a minimum of £10,000 is available for the beneficiaries. So it is important you are willing to rise to the challenge and are confident of attracting personal support; it will be a unique opportunity to demonstrate your support for the community and the 2020 beneficiaries. We will recognise the support of the hundred entrants by giving them all a commemorative medal but of course the real pleasure will be in ‘just doing it’ for the community!
We already have FIVE entrants we are looking for another 95! The choice of either the normal 7.4K [4.6 miles] route or the short route of 3.8k [2.4miles] is available but of course more cash is likely to be forthcoming from residents if you choose the traditional route.
It is hoped that representatives from the 2020 beneficiaries will be some of the first to come forward and that they will be supported by those who have benefitted from some of the £468,000 raised over the years.
