The Linda Norgrove Foundation annual 10K race/walk is looming and this year will be held on Saturday 5th October on the Bhaltos Peninsula.

The main event will start by Reef Beach at 12 noon.

They say: "You can RUN, WALK or JOG, whichever you prefer, wear one of our event t-shirts and help us to raise funds for Afghan women and children who are living in a war zone.

"If you are a runner there will be medals for the first ten men and first ten women to cross the finish line, and for children walking with adults."

Entry is £10, children under 16 are free. T-shirts are £12, once again in new colours for this year.

You can register and buy t-shirts on the day or online through our website:

Please tell anyone who you think might like to join you, all abilities and ages are welcome.

As always, there will be soup and home baking for you when you finish, or half-way if you need some added energy, this is John’s trick.

If you are not on the island, perhaps you would like to join in wherever you happen to be and do your favourite activity in support. If you do, please let is know where you are, if you are climbing a mountain, or cycling or whatever and send a photo! We’d love to hear.

In the meantime, do look out for up-dates on the LNF Facebook page.

We hope to see you on the day if possible and thank you for your support in the past,
