Luton North 10km Charity Run
Luton North are organising a 10 kilometre charity run on Sunday September 14th. at 10.30am, over bridlepaths footpaths and trails in open country in the beautiful countryside under Warden Hills on the Eastern edge of Luton, starting and finishing at the Regional Sports Centre, Stopsley, Luton.
The club is hoping to raise £15,000 from runner's entry fees and sponsorship with half of the money raised going to The Stroke Association and the rest to the Rotary Youth Trust for Luton and other Rotary charities.
Runners raising £150 will go in to a free draw for an adventure experience, and second prize is a water colour painting by Ron Wright, a Rotarian and well-known local artist.
The top fundraiser will be offered a top class prize of a weekend use of a Porsche Boxster supplied by Premier Bodyshops, part of the Ludlows of Luton group. (some limitations will apply). The alternative prize is £100 cash.
Our club is very keen to make this a great Rotary success, running clubs within a 40 mile radius have been contacted via Runner's World and by post and e.mail, and local industry has been invited to help by promoting entries from their own staff. Apart from their knowledge of their local running clubs, Rotary Clubs in our district will almost certainly know a lot of people who may be prepared to run for charity and raise money for a good cause, and we would like to ask their support by passing the details of our event to potential participants. Entry is easy, just go to www.luton-north-stroke10k.co.uk and pay by credit card via Paypal. Supporters who want to sponsor the runner can give their donation in the same way.
If runners want to enter by post, write to John Cook at 209 Sharpenhoe Road, Streatley, Luton. LU3 3PR. Tel. 01582-881695.
This is an ambitious project and deserves to succeed in providing very worthwhile causes with substantial sums of money, and with the concerted effort of clubs in 1260 I'm sure it will be a rip roaring success.
