Friend of the blog Susan Croxford has been in touch to ask if I could issue an appeal for people to volunteer to help Marshal the H2O Events Chasewater Kidney 4 Life Run which takes place this coming Sunday September 18th 2016 for the Kidney 4 life charity.
The event had marshals sorted but has since been let down.
Marshals are required from 9am to 1pm, and will probably be rewarded with good karma, a warm fuzzy glow and so forth. H20 events issued this appeal:
We have just been let down for marshals for the event. We are now looking for volunteers to help us Marshall the event on Sunday.
If you can spare a few hours on Sunday morning please get in touch.
If you arrive at the inovation centre at chasewater at 9 am, ask for Nathan Black or Obi Leigh we will get you all marshalled up.
Many thanks for your help.
You can also contact the organisers via their Facebook page here. Information about the event is available in full here.
Here’s a brief introduction to the event:
H20-Events is hosting it’s first ever charity event at Chasewater, the park consists of 360 hectares of water and open space. The reservoir was first created in the eighteenth century as a canal feeder and to transport colliery produce and remains the largest canal feeder reservoir in use today.
The event is all about raising awareness for organ donation and raising money for our selected charities, the British Kidney Patient Association (BKPA) & St Peter and St James Hospice & continuing care centre.
The day consists of a 3 events, 5K, 10K and the half marathon around the stunning countryside of Chasewater which is area of outstanding natural beauty. The terrain around Chasewater will be classed as off road. You will be up against some muddy footpaths and some small rocky ones as well, please be aware this is not a ROAD RUN you will be running over different terrains. The runs will start and finish at the just outside innovation centre building.
We are hoping to attract crowds from all over the Midlands to help cheer on the runners and athletes and help them enjoy the thrill of the race. The local community, schools and local businesses and anyone else are encouraged to get involved and offer support to the runners along the course.
