This event is now completed.
Donations are still being accepted as plans continue for the development of the area.
All donations received will go to the restoration of the track and facilities. The plans for the area include:
- Full restoration of the running surface
- Installation of floodlights
- Pavilion with changing rooms and car parking
The Chairman and the Coach don’t take on small challenges.
John Carragher and Michael Powell are currently running 4 miles, every 4 hours for 7 days – a physically and mentally challenging event aimed at raising awareness and donations for the restoration of the Chaffers running track at Rimrose Valley.
John Carragher said: “We have ambitions to raise a substantial amount of money to restore the running track. Powelly and I are going to do everything we can to give this fantastic cause the greatest exposure we can do.
“It’s going to be a tough one and a tiring one but I’m sure it’ll be totally worth it.”
The boys will have a series of routes they’ll run throughout the local area during the week and will be looking for people and businesses to offer support and cheer them on as they pass by.
Michael Powell said: “The track is already becoming a hub for local people and this will become even more important this summer as the lockdown restrictions are eased. We want everyone to get behind us and donate whatever they can to really help this community project develop into the vision we know can become a reality. ”
The first run started at 8pm on Friday 23rd April with a grand finale finishing at Bootle FC on April 30th.
