Put on your trainers with CRASH and BMN!

Published:  18 March, 2015

Join CRASH and BMN at this year's Windsor Half Marathon to raise money for charity in beautiful surroundings

2015 sees the 33rd running of the Windsor Half Marathon, so why not tie up your trainers and take part? Whether you run, jog or walk the spectacular course, each mile completed on 27 September, 2015, will raise money for CRASH, the founding charity of this unique event.

Set in the grounds of the magnificent Windsor Castle, CRASH has teamed up with Builders’ Merchants News to create a wonderful opportunity for colleagues, family and friends throughout the industry to come together to raise money to help homeless men and women. If 13.1 miles is a step too far for you, why not sign up for the Glynn Shefford Memorial Run (approximately 2 miles) instead, which is open to anyone over the age of 10?

The CRASH team will be on hand throughout the day to provide entertainment and welcome distractions in the form of refreshments, a raffle and the now infamous massage chairs. For the little ones there will be face painting and party games to keep them occupied.

Why not make a company day of it and bring along a picnic, invite the family and join in the fun?

CRASH places cost £35 to register, and runners are asked to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship. Teams of 10 and over will receive a framed photographic memento of the day to display on the office wall.

If this isn’t already enough to tempt you into the challenge, then CRASH will be awarding prizes for:

  • Top Team fundraiser – Most amount raised by one company
  • Top Individual fundraiser – Most amount raised by one individual
  • Fastest Male – First male CRASH runner across the finish line
  • Fastest Female – First female CRASH runner across the finish line.

To register, please download this WHM 2015 Runners Confirmation Form and send to Amy at ahart@crash.org.uk or, for more information, please call on 0208 742 0717.

CRASH would like to thank its Patron companies Imtech, Aecom and A Plant for their continued support.

Is DIY a lost art?

As time goes by, the art of do-it-yourself when it comes to activities around the home and garden is fast becoming more and more of a lost art.
