JOIN US AT WARDOWN PARK PARKRUN ON SATURDAY 29TH JUNE AND RUN 5K FOR AZALEA

 

If you fancy donning your trainers and raising some funds for us by running 5K, we would be delighted if you can join us at the parkrun at Wardown Park in Luton. By registering with them you'll be given a barcode which will enable you to find out how long it took you to complete the 5K, but you don't need to in order to participate.

 

Once you have decided to take part, and for assistance in setting up your own online fundraising page linked to GET ACTIVE FOR AZALEA, please email helen.snowden@azalea.org.uk so we can be in touch with the details of where we will meet on the day. We also have Azalea/Flint t-shirts for you to borrow to wear while you run. 

 

If you are going to fundraise online please go to Virgin Money Giving to set up your own page linked to Get Active for Azalea.

 

The opportunity to Get Active for Azalea goes beyond the 5K parkrun at Wardown Park, check out these other challenges and take your pick!


If the 5K parkrun at Wardown Park on 29th June isn't for you, then why not raise funds for us by finding a physical challenge you'd love to do!

Last year, Wendy Brown swam the length of the English Channel at her local pool, Joy Cheung power walked a half marathon and many other wonderful supporters ran 10K's, half marathons and marathons.

 

We are delighted (and in awe) that this year Fritz Theron has challenged himself to run the Cape Town Two Oceans Ultra Marathon with Helen Snowden and Ruth Robb picking up the power walking half marathon baton from Joy.

 

If you'd like to join in an organised event, here are a few of the challenges out there:
