Runway Ride for charity

Local cyclists have the chance to ride on the airport runway this evening, in aid of the Sarah Groves Foundation.

Individuals will head to the airport between 21:00 and 00:00 for the event.

It follows on from last year's Tour de Sez bike ride to Amsterdam which raised more than £150,000 for the charity, net of all expenses.

Although this year's runway event is on a much smaller scale, it acts as a pre-cursor to an upcoming personal challenge for organisers Gary Hooks and Leon Howard.

The pair plan to set off cycling from St Malo to Istanbul in September as a three-week fundraiser for the foundation. They will travel via Rome as a planning stage for the 2021 Tour de Sez, which could stretch from St Malo to Rome - known as 'Home to Rome'.

Two support staff have agreed to accompany the cyclists, and are currently appealing for a four-berth mobile home to borrow for the journey. If anyone has one and is willing to loan it or hire it out for a discounted price they are asked to contact organisers 07781 415803.

Entries for the runway ride have now closed.
