Charities and fundraisers are being called upon to make the most of Hunstanton’s third 10km Beach Run to generate funds for their cause.
Registration fees for the event help raise money for the Stroke Association and the Friends of Lynn Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s Stroke Unit, but for the first time runners can take part and donate sponsorship elsewhere if they wish.
George Burroughs, Stroke Association regional fundraising manager for the East of England, said: “It is the third year the event has taken place and we have moved it from the end of September into the middle of the summer season so we are hopefully going to see sunshine in June.
“It’s an opportunity to raise vital funds for the Stroke Association and the stroke unit in King’s Lynn and this year we have opened the event out so that anybody can register to take part and raise sponsorship for their own cause. It’s a case of the more the merrier.”
The event takes place om Sunday, June 15, along firm sand and is suitable for serious runners and novices. There will be music and a warm up provided by Oasis Sports and Leisure Centre where the run begins.
World speedway stars Tai Woffinden and Rory Schlein joined an official event to launch and promote this year’s event, along with Elizabeth Watson, West Norfolk mayor.
Last year, 50 runners took part in the event, which is strongly supported by Ryston Runners.
Registration for the event costs £20. For more information contact the East of England Regional Fundraising Office on 01284 749650 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
