Would you go the distance for Epilepsy?

Places available on 10km road run to raise funds for local charity

Chiswick based charity, The Epilepsy Research Foundation, has guaranteed places in the British 10K Road Race on 13th July 2003 for runners willing to raise over £100 in sponsorship for epilepsy research. The British 10K Road Race is a mass participant charity-based running event following an attractive 6.2 mile route through the heart of central London.

If you were inspired by the Marathon but feel daunted by the distance, why not contact the Epilepsy Research Foundation about guaranteed race entry for the British Open 10K and get into training now! 10 kilometres 6.2 miles is a comfortable distance for most people (with appropriate preparation) and even the most leisurely participant could expect to cover the route in less than 2 hours. Entrants must be at least 15 years old and able to complete the course within 2 hours.

The Epilepsy Research Foundation, based in Chiswick, is the only charity in the UK to raise money for independent scientific research into epilepsy and its causes. It has granted over £1½ million to research projects over the last 10 years. Epilepsy affects some 300,000 people in the UK, half of them children.
