Redditch Sponsorship for 2 Castles Runner

By Philip Roberts - Posted on 28 June 2013

Redditch Runner Ed Roberts

Not being blessed with its own long distance runners, Rotary Club of Redditch turned to the next generation to participate in the 2 Castles Run, which took place on June 9th. Edward Roberts joined the District 1060 team to run on behalf of the Redditch Club, and finished 683rd out of 3388 runners, with a very creditable time of 47 minutes and 47 seconds.

Sponsorship from Redditch raised £300 towards the Rotary Wheel Appeal, which will help to provide specialist wheelchairs for sports men and women hoping to build on the legacy of the 2012 Paralympic Games.

Ed was so enthused by the experience, that he hopes to run again next year.
