Davidís Great Glen Paddle
26th April 2013
This year, David Cranston is undertaking The Great Glen Paddle - each in their own canoe will paddle sixty-five miles from Fort William to Inverness in two formats concurrently.
Aimed at very experienced paddlers the first format is a timed endurance race endeavoring to cover the entire route non-stop as quickly as possible, with the added interest of aiming to set the record for a coast to coast crossing by water.
The second format is a pure distance challenge event for those wishing to cover the beautiful course in a more relaxed but still challenging three days - this is the one that David and friends are doing!
Zoe Bunce is running the Marlow5
12th May 2013
“Anyone who has seen me do sport knows I hate running with a passion! But inspired by my Dad and wanting to do something to remember my Nanna I decided to do the Marlow5 run. Hopefully with your help I will be able to raise some money for UCARE”
The 34th Annual Otmoor Challenge
Saturday 1st June 2013
UCARE will be running a raffle at the fete Ė please come along and support us. If you have raffle items that you could donate, please contact the office on 01865 767777 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Vist the Otmoor Challenge website for more information on the day and the challenge.
The challenge is well established on the runners' calendar as "Otmoor Day" and we welcome runners from a wide area, mostly covering the South and Midlands, but also from much further afield. The course is a mixture of roads and trails, mostly flat, but with the "never-ending field" leading, at the 11 mile point, to a long climb up the hill to Beckley. The reward, however, is a view of the last mile and a half as far as the finish in the middle of the Horton-cum-Studley village fete.
