Support the Free for All runners in the half marathon

Our amazing team of runners are once again training for the Colchester Half Marathon, which will be on Sunday 25th March 2018.

This year the Colchester Half Marathon organisers will be donating all  proceeds from the main event to the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust and MS-UK. We wish them all a great event and success in their fundraising. North are hugely grateful that we have been allowed to enter a team to raise sponsorship for our own charity. Our heartfelt thanks go to the organisers and to all our runners and marshals who make our involvement possible.

Over the last 4 years our team have raised over £14,500 in total and we are hoping that the 5th year will be our biggest and best year ever!

All the children and parents at school will know staff members, friends, colleagues or a parent of a child in the same class, who is getting involved in the half marathon to raise funds for Free for All. Please support them by sponsoring them, cheering them on at the race and helping us make this a record-breaking event!

Good luck to everyone!
