Marrowthon committee are once again organising a run in order to raise money on behalf of the Anthony Nolan Trust.

The details of the run are as follows:
Date: Sunday 17th June 2012
Location: Abbey park, Abbey Park Road, Leicester, LE4 5AQ

Start time of run: 11.00am

The race entry fee is £10, however every runner will receive a certificate and goodie bag!! Prizes will be allocated to the fastest runners (males and females) and best costumes ??more details to follow!

Your money can save lives! £17,500 is the average cost of a Thermalcycler, which amplifies fragments of DNA and helps us determine if a donor’s stem cells are a potentially lifesaving match for a patient.

Anyone can take part in this event. If you are under 18 years of age, you will need a parent or guardian to sign your registration card. If you have any injuries or pre-existing medical conditions which may affect your ability to complete the course safely, please check with your GP. People with disabilities are welcome and may be able to take part but should contact us in advance.

Abbey Park is Leicester’s premier park and lies approximately one mile north of the City centre. The River Soar divides this beautiful park into two distinct areas: to the east of the river lies the highly decorative Victorian part of the park with its evergreen shrubberies, trees, lakes and formally planted flower displays and to the west of the river lies the fascinating Abbey Grounds. Within this area are the remains of the twelfth century Leicester Abbey and the ruins of Cavendish House, a seventeenth century mansion.
