Resolution run: 2nd January, Peacehaven

The organisers of the Peacehaven #parkrun are organising a resolution run on 2nd January, the day after our New Year’s Day Run. They say, ‘we are holding a fun run on 2nd January to raise some funding to get the Park run off the ground . We’re hoping to be supported by Barclays Bank and we’ve reached the Finals of the Aviva Community funding competition so we’re very hopeful that the Park run  is going to happen .
Would your club consider supporting our new year Resolution run by helping steward the run? We need about a half a dozen people with experience of these events to help.
Alternatively your members may want to run themselves. Places on the run can be booked through Eventbrite<
If you can help marshal, contact
Ian Kedge or Megan Comber at Sussex Community Development Association.

Support the new Peacehaven #parkrun

We’ve been asked by the proposed Peacehaven parkrun to encourage members to register to vote for them to receive support from the Aviva Community Fund. They’re bidding for £3,000 for start-up costs for a parkrun to take place in the Big Park in Peacehaven. Once you’ve registered with the site, you then have ten votes to cast, for the parkrun (or you can split your votes between the parkrun and other projects). Parkrun will part fund new events, but require organisers to match their £2500 contribution. Register and vote at…/project/view/16-2764
