RACE organisers are on the hunt for willing volunteers and charities to take part in the EHM Festival of Run in Warrington on September 21.

The event, which includes a 10k road race, family mile and a half marathon, is already being supported by charities including St. Rocco’s, JUMP, Home-Start Warrington, Peace Centre and Claire House Hospice.

Event director, Rob Griffiths said: “Our races are very welcoming to runners of all abilities and we very much see charities as the bedrock of our event.

“The English half marathon has raised many hundreds of thousands of pounds over the last 5 years and we want that to continue.”

Discounts for charity groups have been created and opportunities to promote their causes within Victoria Park and along the route.
