This week on Gillian Jago’s race calendar was a children’s charity event which saw participants take in a location with fantastic history and a completely enclosed facility. The course, which is set in an area of parkland has been a historic home for horse-racing as far back as the early 19th Century – with the current racecourse opened in 1899. Alder Hey Children’s Charity raises essential funds to ensure that the Children’s Hospital can provide world-class, patient-friendly treatment for the 330,000 patients and families they care for every year. The Running Bee Foundation will be partnering with the trust to host the 10k running event at Haydock Park Racecourse. All of the profits from the race will be donated to assist the children’s Hospital.
Gillian’s take on the race…”It was a bit odd underfoot, the road was gravel with a bit of sand thrown in. The race seemed to be over very quickly”. Finishing in 49:19 and once again first in her age category she described it very modestly as “Just a good day at the office” Well we’ll all second that! All finishers received a Haycock Park Racecourse finishers medal and a technical running t- shirt. Fantastic running Gillian, well done!
