Keep on running for the tenth charity Triple Run

PEOPLE in Malvern are being urged to pull on their running shoes to help a charity celebrate its tenth anniversary.

Registration is now open for the 2015 Triple Run, which takes place on Sunday, June 21, in aid of Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The annual event, which will be held at Three Counties Showground, Malvern, shares its tenth anniversary with the Acorns for the Three Counties hospice, which first opened its doors in Bath Road, Worcester on 14 March 2005.

More than 10,000 people have been involved raising in excess of £350,000 for the charity. And due to the significance of this year’s race, Laura Heathfield, events manager for Acorns, said she was hoping more runners and families than ever before will turn out to help mark the milestones.

“It’s fantastic to see the Triple Run in double figures and this year is hugely significant both for the event and our Three Counties hospice,” she said.

“We rely on public fundraising and voluntary donations from events such as the Triple Run to provide us with the majority of the funding we need to operate all three of our hospices, which costs more than £8.8 million.”

The courses, which include the 1km Fun Run; the 5km Woodland Trail and the Malvern Half Marathon, are designed to appeal to all ages, levels of fitness and sporting ability.

Ken Nottage, chief executive of the Three Counties Showground, added: “I’m delighted that the Acorns Triple Run continues to go from strength to strength and is now marking its tenth year.

“It is a fantastic highlight in our events calendar and we’ve been very happy to host Acorns over the years.

“I’m sure this year will be just as successful and I’m looking forward to everyone packing out the Showground and raising funds in support of this truly worthwhile cause.”
