Running for Mayfair

We’re putting our best foot forward this autumn.

Mayfair has four runners taking part in the Church Stretton 10K later this month. They will be running the challenging 10K circuit, scaling the Burway and climbing to 1,614 ft above sea level to raise awareness of the valuable work Mayfair does in the community.

The Church Stretton 10K is a new race offered by Shropshire events company UKAC. They describe it as ‘one of the most scenic closed road 10k races in the UK’. But those views come at a height, and most of the climbing takes place in the first mile and a half of the course.

The race takes place on Sunday 24 October. It will start at 10am in Rectory field, and from there loop around Church Street and the High Street before ascending the Burway. Joanna, Holly, Susanne and Derek will all be hoping to keep their chins up and their legs pumping as they take on that hill. If you’d like to sponsor them, and help put a spring in their step, head over to our Just Giving page or ask for a sponsorship form at Mayfair Reception.

Supporting Mayfair is a great way to support your local community. Not only will your sponsorship help gee on our runners, it will also help us to continue offering services and support in response to local needs, including befriending, hot meals, transportation, day services, personal care, digital support, childcare, signposting and more.
