Well what a year, having to cancel the 2020 Poppy Half Marathon was one of the toughest and saddest decisions I have had to take in a long long time…

Dean and I started the Bergen run some 4 years ago in remembrance of Dean’s Grandad who fought in WW1, so after a chat we decided to continue with the tradition… and at 12:30 on Sat 7th November, Dean and I will be at the start of the Poppy Marathon, no frills or race set up, just carrying our 50lb Bergen.. any one who fancies joining us would be very welcome.. the course is not marked but 13.1 miles is what we will be running…

Unfortunately due to Covid we’ve had to cancel all our charity fund raising events and races, but this gives us a small opportunity to raise funds.. A Justgiving Page has been set up and you can support us by clicking the button below.

If you are local to Bexhill and would like to come down and give us a socially distanced cheer that too would be much appreciated.

Take care and hope to see you all once again in 2021
