This year’s annual Bike Walk or Run 4 is raising money for Your Local Air Ambulance.
This third annual event will take place on Sunday 25th June 2017 at Ferry Meadows, Peterborough. There are three routes to choose from: 5km track for walking with or without a dog. (About 3 miles); 8km track for bike, run or walk with or without a dog. (About 5 miles); 12km track for bike or run. (About 7½ miles). There will be marshals along each route.
Registration is open now. Anyone in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland can take part to raise money for their own local air ambulance or for an air ambulance elsewhere in the UK. The registration fee is £10, with no registration fee for children under 13 when accompanied by a fee-paying adult.
In addition to the bike, run or walk activities there will be refreshments, including an ice cream van and a burger van, a selection of stalls including a tombola stall, plus face painting, a bouncy castle and other amusements to make the event a fun family day out. Parking is available for a small fee. There is a Premier Inn and camping facilities nearby.
A registration form can be downloaded from the BRoW4 website www.bikerunorwalk4.com.
People who would like to support the event but not bike, run or walk are welcome to volunteer as marshals.
The event has been organised by BRoW4 (Bike Run or Walk 4), a fundraising group run by volunteers. Founder Anna Dutton said: “Following the success of our first two events when we raised money for Magpas, an air ambulance based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, this year we are being more ambitious by opening the event to cover air ambulances from all over the UK.”
