Megacentre Superhero Park Run

superhero-run-poster-1On 29th October 2016 loads of us will be running the 5k route of the Hockley Woods parkrun dressed as our favourite Superheroes!  The idea is to do something fun together, raise some awareness about our work as a charity and raise a bit of cash for our work with young people and families.

Our kind friends at Hockey Wood parkrun have allowed us to piggy-back on their amazing weekly organised run for the event. The run starts at 9am and you will need to sign up for Hockley Wood parkrun to take part – it’s free!  You don’t need to be an amazing runner and you can walk the route whilst chatting if you want!!!
