Running legend Steve Cram to take part in Suffolk event

RUNNERS are being urged to take part in a ten kilometre run through a picturesque Suffolk town alongside a running legend.

Suffolk brewer Adnams is calling for runners to join Steve Cram for the second Adnams Southwold 10k on Sunday, November 21.

Mr Cram is one of the world’s most successful middle-distance athletes of all time, achieving six Gold medals at Commonwealth, European and World Championships and a Silver Olympic medal.

He will be joined by his BBC sports presenting colleague, and fellow Olympic athlete, Allison Curbishly, along with 600 local runners including Abbie Thorrington and Helen Decker.

Emma Hibbert, Head of Corporate Affairs at Adnams, said: “Quite a few of the team here at Adnams are runners so last year we thought it would be a great idea to organise an event on our home turf. Last year we raised �5,000 for the Prince’s Trust Million Makers Challenge and this year all proceeds will be split between the Adnams Charity and Suffolk SportsAid Destination Gold Project.

“It was a great event last year, with many club runners starting alongside those competing in a race for their first time. As you would expect, there’s a fantastic goody bag for all participants with a bottle of Adnams beer for everyone over 18.
