Our first Poppy Run was held in 2003 and has been held annually on a date close to Remembrance Sunday in November each year.

Below is a selection of photos of both races.  Scroll down for many more photos

Thank-you to Richard & Margaret Thompson for all of the following photographs

The first Poppy Run had Tanni Grey-Thompson along with husband Ian and their daughter Carys all taking part.  It was the first race for Carys then eighteen months old and her race was sixty metres.  Tanni and Ian competed in the five mile event.  On that occasion Mick Hill, the great javelin thrower, and his son Max also took part.

This our 11th anniversary and we wish to encourage as many participants as possible to run and raise funds for The Poppy Appeal

All profits are in aid of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Why not come along and have a go in the Fun Run which is open to all ages and is over a distance of 3 miles.

For the more competitive there is a 5 mile race with a minimum age of 15 years.
