On Saturday 26th October we are hosting a race in Barrow-In-Furness, to raise funds for #GetLeafyHome. Darren Leith has been affected by "Locked in" syndrome for two years now. This affliction stops all motor functions in the body but the mind remains active and alert. It is similar to paralysis without any physical damage occurring to the body. After lots of hard work from both Physios and from Darren, he is starting to make progress with small head movements and broken speech but he still has a long way to go. Darren and his family require support and funding for the day to day care that is required and any expenses that are needed for hospital trips and equipment that is needed etc.

The event will be ran over 3 hours and runners / walkers can enter the following challenges:

5km - £3 junior (Up to 15yrs) £5 adult
10km -£6 Junior (up to 15yrs) £8 adult
3 hour challenge £10

The event HQ will be at Barrow Tally Ho pub, LA14 5DN and the run route will be around the Ormsgill Reservoir.
5km will be 3 laps of the course
10km will be 6 laps of the course

Runners will receive a basic medal (or previous event medal: a variety of event medals will be available at the finish) and trophies will be given out to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the all three challenges.

We look forward to being able to support Darren and his family with this great event and hope that we can bring an enjoyable day to runners / walkers and spectators a like whilst raising funds for a worthy cause which is close to home.
