Reepham Cross Country 2019: Selling out fast get your entries now

posted 9 Nov 2018, 00:52 by Greg Pearson

The ever popular Reepham Runners Cross Country Charity run will be taking place this winter, on Sunday 20 January 2019.

 

There will be mud, water, dykes, gates and railway track as usual for you all to enjoy!

The race starts at 10.30 am at Whitwell & Reepham Station, about 1 mile outside of Reepham.

 

This is a good event to bring your family to as they can watch from the station platform as you run past them doing the two laps and then as you sprint finish to the end!  (No dogs to run the route this year)

 

After the race there is a good selection of cakes, beer and other food and you can enjoy the delights the Station has to offer. 

 

It is two laps for adults (over 15 years) and one lap for the 11-15 year olds.

 

We will be having the usual prizes for the ‘muddiest’ and quickest junior.  As well as a memento for all runners.

 

Some of the Charities the run is raising money for this year so far are:

·       Reepham Nursery to purchase much needed equipment https://reephamnurseryschool.co.uk


·       Nicky's Foundation which aims to improve the lives of vulnerable people and people with disabilities living in South West Cameroon by - Providing specialist equipment in the community - Supporting vulnerable children and children with disabilities in going to school - Sponsoring the referral for specialist medical and surgical interventions and by promoting income generating activities within the community which are sustainable.

·       Reepham High School Allotment Project & Orchard.  The Allotment Project is a national & regional award-winning school allotment that tries to set an example to children/young people for a better, more environmentally friendly world.  http://www.reephamhigh.com/our-school/allotment-project/
