Organisers have announced the details of this year’s Middlesex University Fun Run. This year’s event, on Wednesday 12 May, will raise funds for charity Help for Heroes.
The run, which starts at 5.30pm and takes runners on a 5km loop through the university’s beautiful Trent Park campus, will be started by Freestyle Footballer and two-time Guinness World Record holder Billy Wingrove.
Billy works with Tottenham Hotspur on their community coaching schemes and has appeared on television several times including on the BBC’s Match of The Day and A Question of Sport.
As with every year, the University is encouraging everyone to join in and is also staging a 3km Health Walk on a different circuit at Trent Park for those who would prefer more of a chance to savour the stunning scenery.
It is likely Elvis, the Teletubbies and all manner of others will be out in force again this year as many participants get into the spirit of the event with Fancy Dress costumes.
Head of Sport and Recreation at Middlesex, Mel Parker, said: “This is an event we all look forward to here at Middlesex and we always encourage as many people as possible to take part. Whether you are looking to clock a good time or just want to join in the fun by running or walking in fancy dress, you will be helping raise money for charity, while exploring the beautiful scenery around our Trent Park campus.”
This inclusive event, which costs £7 for adults, £4 for University students and £3 for under 16s and concessions to enter, is looking to raise as much money as possible for the Help for Heroes charity, which exists to help members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded. Anyone wishing to take part should go to the sports events part of the site and download an entry form or call 020 8411 4727 for more details.
