Hi, a big thank you to all the runners, marshals and supporters at the Cookridge Community Run 2021 – what a great day in the sunshine and a great turnout, Gareth would have been proud of you all.
If you couldn’t make it, a goodie bag and T shirt will be available to collect from the Scout hut at the start line on Pinfold Lane (off Cookridge Lane) on Tuesday 13th July between 6:40pm -- 7:20pm or Thursday 15th July between 6:25pm – 7:15pm.
Don’t forget, if you want to make a donation to Gareth’s fundraising page go to justgiving.com/fundraising/chemotionally-unstable
all funds go to Cancer Research UK – your support will help us beat cancer. See you all again in May 2022.
On Sunday 11 July 2021 at 9.30am, the second annual Cookridge Community 10K will take place around Golden Acre Park. There will also be a one mile Fun Run starting at 9.00am.
The races are in aid of Cancer Research UK and also support local charities including OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality), Scouts, Guides and junior sports clubs. The run is dedicated to local fundraiser, Gareth Dunn, who sadly passed away from cancer in 2018 aged just 27 after raising over £100,000 for Cancer Research UK.
There are two runs on Sunday 11 July 2021 – a scenic 10K trail race starting at 9.30am and a one mile Fun Run which starts at 9.00am. Both races start and finish at the Cookridge Village Scout Hall on Pinfold Lane, off Otley Road. Click here for more details of both runs and how to enter.
You don’t have to be a runner to be involved. We are looking for race marshals, car park attendants, first aid assistants and volunteers to manage traffic and water stations – maybe you just want to come along and cheer on the runners. Click here to find out how to help.
As a local, community-based event we could not run these races without sponsorship and support from local businesses.
Their generous financial support covers the costs of running the event, so all other monies raised go directly to charity.
