Muddy fun for charity

RUNNERS from across the region are being encouraged to get dirty in aid of charity.

The Muddy Mo Fun Run is a 5km cross-country challenge being held next month in support of the Movember campaign, a charity that aims to raise awareness of men’s health issues throughout the month of November.

The event is scheduled to take place at Hardwick Park, Sedgefield, on Saturday November 10.

Durham County Council sport and physical activity officer, Marie Urwin, said: “The Muddy Mo Fun Run is the first of its kind to take place at Hardwick Park and we’re hoping it will be a fun way to raise vital cash for the charity.

“We’re encouraging men and women to register to take part and enjoy a fun run with a muddy twist.”

Entrants can register for the run by calling 03000 282012.

Entry is £12 per person.
