Hilary's Race the Train - Bury to Rawtenstall

I am Racing the Train (Bury to Rawtenstall) on Sunday 19th June 2016 for Mary’s Meals because I like new challenges

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I always wanted to enter a "Race the Train" event, so there was no excuse when I heard about the Bury to Rawtenstall Race the Train being staged on Sunday 19th June 2016.

The course is about 11 miles long, so further than the 10km distance I normally race. I can guarantee I won't beat the train, but I am sure I will have a great time running along a beautiful & interesting route.

I decided to raise money at the same time & to support Mary's Meals. This is a charity I am involved with through Rotary Ramsbottom.

Mary's Meals sets up school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities where poverty & hunger prevent children from gaining an education. It costs just £12.20 to feed a child with Mary's Meals for an entire school year.
