PEOPLE are being urged to sign up and represent a Gobowen-based charity at a major local running event this summer.

Runners are sought to represent The Movement Centre at The Brynkinalt Running Festival, which is set to go ahead on Sunday, July 4.

The event is open to people aged 16 and over of all abilities with races covering three different distances on the day – 5k, 10k and 20k.

The charity has teamed up with Adrenaline Sporting Events for the event, run by Alan Lewis.

Mr Lewis said: “We are pressing ahead with the run and urging people to sign up now to take part.

“We are hoping the vaccine will have made a huge difference in the battle against Covid by then and the running festival will be a great opportunity for people to get out and run in the great outdoors among some magnificent scenery.

“Each race offers a challenging route and all finishers will get a medal. It is open to all ages and abilities and it really doesn’t matter if people want to take part for fitness, the competition, their health, to raise money for charity or just for fun - they will all be welcome.”

The Movement Centre has 10 free places on its team to fill and is asking anyone interested in taking one of the available spots to contact them as soon as possible.

Anyone else signing up to run in the event is being urged to consider raising money for The Movement Centre through sponsorship or by setting up a JustGiving page.

Curtis Langley, of the charity, said: “We have been given 10 free places for the event and are asking people to be part of our team but, with places limited, it’s important they get in touch as soon as possible.

“Obviously, if anyone else running on the day would like to raise funds for The Movement Centre, we would love to hear from them. We would pay the entry fee provided they raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship.

“We are delighted that Alan Lewis and the team at Adrenaline Sporting Events are organising the event. Alan is a big supporter of The Movement Centre and will be making a donation to us from money raised through entry fees – so the more people that sign up for the run the better.”

The festival takes place in the grounds of the Brynkinalt Estate at Chirk, with entry to the 5k event costing £14, £19 for the 10k event and £24 for the 20k.

Anyone wanting to take part can sign up now and it’s hoped that each event will have around 250 runners.
