Our friends at Northfield Eco-centre are looking for people to run for them this year. After all the fun and success enjoyed by their teams in the Great Midlands Fun Run and BUPA Half Marathon last year, they are putting together teams to enter both again this year.

The Great Midlands Fun Run (8.5 miles) is on Sunday 2nd June and the BUPA Half Marathon (13.1 miles) is on 20th October. Run if you’re up to the challenge or take it easy and walk the route instead.

They have places in both runs booked with some people signed up already. If you would like to join their team they will support you with training tips, sponsorship ideas and forms and general moral support. All runners receive a trendy Northfield Ecocentre running t-shirt.

They ask that for the Great Midlands Fun Run the minimum amount raised should be £60, and £100 for the Half Marathon.  And if you pledge to raise £150 you will receive an eco-goody bag!

They already have a number of people booked, keen to have fun and raise a bit of money for the Ecocentre. This is a fantastic fun way to show your support for their work. And if running isn’t your thing, you can support the runners by sponsoring them and cheering them on on the day.

Get in touch on 0121 448 0119 and ask for Kara or email kara@northfieldecocentre.org if you’re interested.
