Fund raising event offers chance to chat with Olympic hero
Run 10 for Mo, an event organised by the Mo Farah Foundation, is holding a fundraising fun run in Wimbledon Park on 18th May.
A festival feel is promised, along with training support, sweatshop discounts vouchers and the chance to win a phone call with Mo himself. Registration will be from 9am and the race will start at 10am.
The event is in its second year and in 2014 there are two runs with the other one taking place in Manchester in July. Last year the Mo Farah Foundation held its first ever ‘Run 10 for Mo’ (10k) in Bushy Park.
Despite the hot weather, the organisers were delighted to see all 150 runners cross the finishing line and receive their goody bags, the fastest time being 0:34:09. They held a competition for the top fundraiser and the winner received a 5 minute telephone conversation with Mo himself. Each runner also had a completion certificate with their individual timings.
There is a minimum fundraising amount of £25 for every runner who signs up for this event.
