ANNUAL CHARITY HALF MARATHON PUB WALK
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st, 2019
Yes, it’s that time of year again where we challenge ourselves for a great cause….raising funds for the Bedford Daycare Hospice. This Charity provides a haven for those with long term health conditions and terminal illnesses. I have been there and have to say it was the most uplifting place where attendees can take part in activities and have amazing support from the staff and volunteers. Our Carol is the chef there, giving her time and talents so kindly and our Caron goes there regularly too to treat the folks to a pamper which they so enjoy and otherwise wouldn’t do.
If you would like to challenge yourselves to this awesome walking challenge and help raise funds for the Hospice, you have options: you can do 5 miles, 9 miles or the whole half marathon. We will be walking from Sharpenhoe Clappers to Harlington where we will quench our thirst at the Carpenters Arms. We then will head to Pulloxhill via Bunyans Oak where John Bunyan was arrested for preaching and thrown into Bedford jail. At Pulloxhill we will definitely be needing more sustenance at the Cross Keys Pub to finish the last stage back to Sharpenhoe.
We will be risk assessing this walk shortly to make sure the route is okay for you all and to check on the distances. I will then give you an update on the terrain etc.
Registration is £12 for the 9 mile walk and half marathon and
£8 for the 5 mile walk. Please register by Friday 30th August.
Those doing the shorter distances will need to leave their cars at the pubs where we will pick you up and drive you to the start. Really looking forward to this fun challenge with you all.
