Agricultural charity running competition
GROWERS are being encouraged to join a running competition that will raise awareness and funds for farming charities impacted by the lack of fundraising events this year
Launched to coincide with #AgMentalHealthWeek, the challenge, #Run1000, offers the opportunity to join one of five teams – England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the rest of the world. The £20 joining fee will be divided equally between five charities, selected by the team captains – The Farming Community, Embrace Farm, The Do More Agriculture Foundation, RSABI and DPJ Foundation.
The competition, which will take place from January 1st to 31st 2021, will see each team run 1,000 miles, with the nation that reaches the milestone first announced the winner. A team captain will lead each nation, and a private Strava group will record the collective running distance.
