Don’t be a couch potato...get your bag of tates by completing March Spud Run
THE next run in the A1 Series offers a very different and tasty prize for all finishers – a bag of potatoes!
The March Spud Run - organised by March Athletic Club - is only in its third year but is already proving to be a popular race with local runners. The five-mile traffic free course consists of mainly off road surfaces of grass bridleway and river bank.
The nine-race A1 series is supporting Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice which receives a donation of 25p for every runner taking part in each race.
Sue Ryder fundraiser, Julie Laithwaite, said: “It is very different to be given a bag of potatoes when you complete a race and it is so nice to know the March Spud Run is in its third year.
“We rely on support from the local community to help the vital work here continue and we greatly appreciate all the support we have.”
