Good luck to our Spooky Sprint runners this weekend
19 October 2012
Over 100 runners will be taking part in our Spooky Sprint in Waltham Abbey tomorrow and
we'd like to wish them all the very best of luck.
5K and 10K Halloween-themed run in the dark takes place in the
River Lee Country Park stretching between Waltham Abbey in Essex
and Broxbourne in Hertfordshire.
Kate will be running for her dad who has Parkinson's
Kate Russell, 27, from Enfield in North London will be running
the 5K Spooky Sprint for her dad Martin, 59, who was diagnosed with
Parkinson's 8 years ago.
Kate said: "I see my dad struggling with Parkinson's every day,
so I know how debilitating the condition can be.
"I'm taking part in Spooky Sprint to raise funds for vital
research. I hope that more effective
medication to deal with the symptoms
can be found, and ultimately a cure for the condition that affects
thousands of people and their families from all over the UK."
Come and join us and sign up on the day

It's not too late for budding werewolves and zombies to sign up and run for us on the day.
Registration opens at 4pm with the children's 1K race (under
10s) starting at 5pm and the 5K and 10K at 6pm. The course is
flat and suitable for all ages and running ability.
Clare Chater, our Head of Events, said: "I hope that all of our
runners taking part in the Spooky Sprint enjoy their day.
"The run is a fantastic event for all of the family, and is open
to everyone. A night of spooktacular fun is guaranteed whatever
your age or running ability.
"Without the support of our fundraisers our vital work to find a cure and improve the lives
of those living with Parkinson's would not be possible."
