Herefordshire Running Festival 2014

Sunday 21st September, 2014, started off really early for ELY.  Our fun runners had to register for 8.30am at the Halo Leisure Pool.  They were Steve Tyler, who completed the two miles in 21 minutes.  Marie & Ollie Watkin, ELY Secretary, and friends Joanne Robins & her daughter Ella Robins, Charlotte Smith and Hannah Evans. 

At Saxon Hall our 10k and half marathon runners were being registered.   Our 10k runners Tim Cooke, Emily Cooke, Josh Thomas, Kyle Dovey and Keira Dovey.  Half Marathon Luke Eversham.    Two of our 10k runners came in the top 20, which was Tim Cooke & Josh Thomas - Amazing!

The 10k runners also entered the Wye Valley Brewery Community Cup - they came 7th out of 23 teams.  Well done to you all! 

A memorable day for everyone and more importantly raising the awareness of Mental Health at the Time to Change Village at King George Playing fields, where ELY also pitched to display our information and merchandise for the Charity. 

Next year the event will be held on the 3rd Weekend in September 2015.  So SAVE THE DATE!!!
