Making a dash for the finish at the Girls on the Run 10K

Oswestry charity 10K is one for the girls

Ladies only run on behalf of Hope House Hospice.

On Sunday 24 July women will put their best feet forward at the Girls on the Run 10K in support of a local children’s hospice. They can look forward to a picturesque route, plenty of support and a goody bag at this inclusive and community focused event.

Girls on the Run 10K (GOTR10K) received a warm welcome at its debut in 2018 to be followed by another successful event in 2019 where over £2,000 was raised for Hope House Children’s Hospice.  

It is organised by Vicki Evans, a lecturer at North Shropshire College and mother of two daughters Poppy and Lyla. Poppy was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome – a rare and severe form of epilepsy before the age of 5 and referred to Hope House Children’s Hospice in Morda, Oswestry. They provide respite care for Poppy and support to her parents, both of which have made a huge difference and enabled them to spend time together as a family. 

The 10K is in gratitude for everything they have done and a way of helping in return. All proceeds from the event are donated to the hospice. 

This is a fun run which is open to all. It starts at 9am from the playing fields at St Martin’s School where the runners follow an attractive marshalled course on country lanes and canal towpath. Finishers will be cheered and applauded as they cross the line in keeping with the event's friendly, all-embracing ethos.

Entries close in two weeks so don’t delay. Entry details can be found right here.
