Ten lucky runners have the chance to join Team EACH and represent East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices at a popular 10k run in Norfolk.
The Recipharm Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR 10k) is taking place in King’s Lynn on Sunday, 1st May.
EACH has been allocated ten spaces and is keen to hear from anyone, whether a novice or seasoned runner, who fancies joining them and helping raise money to support its work across East Anglia.
Tim Jenkins, EACH Community Fundraiser for Norfolk, said: “This is a perfect opportunity for anyone after a fun fitness challenge this Spring.
“It takes place in the picturesque setting of a historic market town and the scenic course is flat and suitable for all.
“It’s an enormously popular event and has sold out in recent years, so anyone wanting to get a fantastic event in their running diary should make contact and book their place now.”
The GEAR 10k, which was staged in August, rather than May, last year, attracts around 3,000 runners and takes in the town centre, River Ouse pathway and The Walks.
Runners also pass famous landmarks including the Custom House, Red Mount and Greyfriars Tower.
The lucky ten are asked to pay a £10 registration fee and the suggested sponsorship amount is £100.
“All you need to do is register your interest by heading to our website,” added Tim.
“We’ll then get back to you.
“In addition, we’d also love to hear from anyone who already has a place and would like to raise money for us.
“Just fill in the same form and we’ll get in touch with fundraising tips and support.”
EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, as well as Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Essex.
It has three hospices – The Nook, near Norwich, Milton, near Cambridge, and The Treehouse, in Ipswich.
