Telford — 25 June 2016
Armed Forces Day – Telford parkrun
The volunteer organising team at Telford parkrun have once again, chosen to show our support on Armed Forces Day.
Numerous members of the Telford and Wrekin Armed Forces community already take part in this free, weekly 5k run, in Telford Town Park. The run itself starts at 9am, every Saturday, near the Visitor Centre in Town Park, and is for all ages and abilities.
With kind permission from the Station Commander at RAF Shawbury, we have encouraged serving personnel and cadets, to complete the run in uniform. Those wishing to show their support, are encouraged to wear red/white/blue and must please ensure they are first registered (for free) by visiting our website. Please ensure you arrive by 0850am, for the mandatory safety briefing and to applaude the troops – www.parkrun.org.uk/telford
Our Armed Forces Day themed parkrun has seen a record turnout in recent years (we have around 450 participants each week), with fantastic support for the Shropshire and wider Armed Forces.
