Join us for a morning Rise and Shine walk or run and take in the beautiful surroundings of Fritton Lake on the Suffolk/Norfolk border.
The brand new event on Sunday 16th September provides something for everyone, whether you want the challenge of a five mile run or walk or a more relaxed two mile walk with the family and even the dog.
Don’t worry if you’re not an early bird, you can still take part. Just turn up before 10am!
Runners who really want to exert themselves can do two laps, making it a ten mile run.
Leanne Carhart, Events Fundraiser, said: “Rise and Shine will be our first fundraising event in the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area organised by the Hospice, since we expanded our services there. Fritton Lake provides a perfect setting for the early morning walk or run.”
Registration for the five mile route starts from 6.30am and for the two mile from 8.30am, but you can still participate if you can’t make the start time. Registration is £10 for all participants, under 13s are free.
Fritton Lake’s owners will be allowing dogs to join in on this occasion and the routes are wheelchair and pushchair friendly. A children’s trail is also included on the two mile walk. Every participant will receive a medal and dogs will receive a rosette.
Walkers are asked to raise sponsorship for the Hospice, a charity which is investing £2.2m in local care for local people in north Suffolk and south east Norfolk over the next three years. It relies on the generosity of the local community to raise the majority of its running costs and to continue to provide services free of charge.
This year the Hospice opened inpatient beds and day services in north Suffolk, including Day Services at the Crossroads Care Centre, Lowestoft. A further day service is due to open in Great Yarmouth in the autumn.
