Run DMRC! Complete three half-marathons to help Headley Court heroes

Complete three half-marathons to help Headley Court heroes
31 July 2017
Can you run three half marathons in just two weeks? Or maybe just one race. If you can and you're free on Sundays in September, you might be able to help the men and women being treated at Headley Court.

The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre between Dorking and Epsom is due to move from Surrey to the new Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre at Stanford Hall near Loughborough.

To help with the move, as well as raising funds to buy specialist equipment and provide services for patients at Headley Court - in particular to allow people to enjoy social activities and get away from the complex for a few hours and briefly forget about their injuries/rehabilitation - staff have set runners a challenge.

That challenge is spread over three consecutive weekends with up to 100 runners pounding the streets of Denbies, near Dorking (September 10), Reigate, Surrey, (September 17) and finally the Winchester Half Marathon (September 24).

Runners will be expected to raise at least £350 for Headley Court - or £550 if they fancy having a crack at all three. The centre will cover your race fees.
