Free Entry into the Shepton Mallet 10k with SOS Africa
On Sunday 27th October 2013 at 10am, residents from the West Country and beyond will take to the streets of Shepton Mallet to take on ‘The Shepton Great Escape’ 10K challenge. The race itself begins outside of the famous Shepton Mallet prison and weaves through the town and out into the countryside and promises to be both fun and challenging for runners of all abilities.
Since the official opening of SOS Africa’s new shop and offices by Glastonbury Festival’s Michael Eavis in April, SOS Africa volunteers have looked to organise exciting fundraising events which will involve members of the local community. In addition to our epic Cranmore Tower Zip Wire Challenge, we have decided that this year’s Shepton Mallet 10k, based in our hometown, presents us with a great opportunity to raise much needed funds for the SOS Africa children.
SOS Africa would therefore like to invite you to participate in this year’s race and raise funds for our cause. As an added incentive, we promise to reimburse the entry fees of all runners who raise over £50 for SOS Africa. We will also provide all entrants with a fundraising pack and running t-shirt!
If you are interested in running the Shepton Mallet 10k for SOS Africa follow these simple steps:
- Go to the 1610 Shepton Mallet 10k website and register for the race (when you register be sure to opt for the £8 fee and state that you are running for SOS Africa).
- Email [email protected] to inform us that you wish to join the team and include your name, postal address and t-shirt size. We will then post you your fundraising pack.
- Contact us if you require an online fundraising page.
For more information, you can also call 01749344197 or pop into our shop and fundraising office at 21 High Street, Shepton Mallet, BA45AA.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to our team!
