It’s August, it’s sunny and it’s definitely that time of year again, where suddenly going out for a run is a lot more appealing than it was on a freezing February morning and the footpaths are full with people getting out and about, enjoying the beautiful Surrey countryside!
With this in mind Kellystore Fun-Raisers have come up with a fantastic way to put all that extra energy and training to good use…
Sunday October 16th 2011 sees the return of Kellystore Fun-Raisers ‘Guildford Riverside Walk and Run’ all in aid of independent local children’s charity, Disability Challengers. This family-friendly and professionally organised event will see participants letting loose their energy on a 5K or 10K run or a 7k walk around this beautiful local park.
With a distance for all levels of fitness, this family event really is a great way to support your local children's charity. For 2011, it will be taking place at Riverside Park in Guildford once again. The route of the race is a cross country 5k lap on even-surfaced sandy and gravel tracks that run through woods, across fields and alongside the River Wey.
Riverside Park contains a mosaic of different habitats including reed beds, wetland, riverside, a lake, ponds, scrub, meadows and woodland, and is popular with bird watchers and walkers.
Last year’s event was a great success with over 400 participants and over £30,000 raised for Disability Challengers.
This year we hope to do even better and with your help support even more local disabled children and young people to access vital play and leisure opportunities across Surrey.
