Join SOS Africa's 2012 Bupa Great South Run Team

 

Since the founding of SOS Africa by a Swansea University student back in 2003, every year individuals and groups from across the UK join together and take on challenges in order to raise invaluable funding for the SOS Africa Charity. Since organising our first long distance fundraising event in 2005, SOS Africa’s fundraisers have raised an incredible £50,000 for the SOS Africa children at our organised events!

This year SOS Africa is looking to introduce a new long distance race to its fundraising calendar and what better race to choose than ‘the World’s premier 10 mile running event,’ during the year in which the UK will host the 2012 London Olympic Games. The Bupa Great South Run promises to be one of the most highly anticipated races on the running calendar during which 30,000 runners will take to the streets of Portsmouth along a fast and flat route which passes through the city’s historic dockyard.

The 10 mile race takes place on Sunday the 28th October 2012. To celebrate the UK’s hosting of the Olympic Games, the Great South SOS Africa team will have a special Olympic theme. As well as offering a free SOS Africa t-shirt to all team members and a free SOS Africa hoodie to runners who raise over £250, we will also be awarding prizes to the best dressed runners.

 

To join our team, all you have to do is the following:

1. Join our Facebook Group. 

2. Set up your own JustGiving online fundraising page – this will allow your family and friends to sponsor you directly using debit or credit cards.

3. Register for the race: http://www.greatrun.org/Events/Event.aspx?id=12 – this is quickly becoming the most popular 10 mile race in the UK so please register as soon as possible.

4. Email your full name, address, shirt size and confirmation that you have done the above to [email protected].

 

Once you have done the above, we will add you to our team list and send you out an SOS Africa runners pack, including a free running shirt for the race, sponsorship forms and information leaflets.

If you require any more information, feel free to contact our UK Office by phone: 01749340426 or by email: [email protected]
