A 13.5 mile run along the canal from Blaby to Foxton Locks to raise money for The Chernobyl Children's Project UK.
A bus will be provided from Foxton Locks top car park on Gumley Road, to take runners back to Blaby, where they will then be able to run along the beautiful Grand Union Canal back to Foxton Locks.
Water and a snack will be provided at the end, most likely in the form of a cheese roll (Vegans can be accommodated if prior notice given), and the opportunity to purchase a well deserved beer! We will also have the lovely Saskia from SJS Sports Massage available at the end to give your tired legs a massage for a small donation to the charity.
There will be a feed and water station at around 8 miles but runners are asked to carry any additional water and food with them that they think they require for the run. All runners should remain in pairs as a minimum, and carry a mobile phone.
It is self navigating, although very simple.....just follow the canal!
The run is unsupported, but an emergency phone number will be provided and there will be a Tail Runner.
This is all about having the opportunity to run a different route, without worrying about transport or getting lost, enjoying the beautiful waterway through very rural parts of Leicestershire, and helping to raise money for a good cause. This is not a race, and times and positions will not be recorded. It is all about just a stunning run with friends!

Register onto the bus from 8.30am
Run to start from Blaby at approximately 9.30am (traffic dependent)
Parking at Gumley Road Foxton Locks is £2 all day pay and display
