The Virtual Gloucester 10k on 4th and 5th July 2020
Organised by Gloucester Quays Rotary Club
All proceeds to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice
So far 544 have signed up!
We are really sad that we can`t bring you this year`s Gloucester 10k. We think it really captures the Gloucester spirit and shows off what Gloucester can do. It is organised by the community for the community to take part in and the proceeds go back to the community.
Gloucester Quays Rotary club is one of the major organisers and has decided to take on the spirit of the race with a virtual 10k. We are hoping you will join in too. This year the main beneficiary of the run was to be Sue Ryder which does a fantastic job with its hospice in Leckhampton work in the community and on a wider basis . Like many charities it has been impacted massively by the coronavirus outbreak. We have decided that all proceeds from the virtual run ( and our only costs will be medals) should go to Sue Ryder.
