On Sunday 10th September, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity organised its rural ramble and trail run. This event has become a firm favourite with local runners and walkers of all abilities. The morning started with glorious sunshine and the day turned into one of the hottest of September. Runners completed a 10-mile circuit through the countryside and the walkers had a choice of 1, 4, 6 or 10 miles. There were water stops along the routes, which were very welcome. Everyone started at the Forgotten Gardens of Easton Lodge near Dunmow and returned to the gardens at the end of their run or walk for a delicious cream tea.
Head of fundraising, Zoe Jay said “We are very grateful to everyone who supported us by taking part in this event on a hot day. Also, to The Bakehouse in Chelmsford and The Tiptree Patisserie for donating scones and to Rodda’s for providing clotted cream at a discounted price. In addition, to our volunteers for signing the routes and helping before the event and on the day”.
Every penny raised from the event will be used to help support local people living with cancer.
