- Hotel Takeover Gala Dinner
Hi MK Charity Eventers, I came across this event, which is a charity dinner/entertainment evening, in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care & Greenfingers Charity. Tickets are £20 per person. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hotel-takeover-gala-dinner-registration-42705359881 There is a 3 course dinner, with food prepared by Milton Keynes College Hospitality Department students, plus live entertainment. Looks like it should be an interesting event, and is something that is not a running race, so is an example of other events we can schedule in this group. Registration ends on Mon 26th Feb (doesn't say what time), and there seemed to be about 30 tickets left when I bought mine. Hopefully others in the group can make it also cheers Chris
- Run the MK Half Marathon/10K for the NSPCC
Run in either the MK half marathon or 10K, or turn up to support those running! Registration & info at http://mkhalfmarathon.org/. Note that registration closes 20 September[masked]:59. Suggest entrants from the group put 'MK Charity Eventers' in the 'club' field. The event is in support of the NSPCC, we can put together a JustGiving page for the group to fundraise for this.
- Parkrun - 5k Training Run
I usually do the MK Willen Lake parkrun on a Saturday morning, so if others in the group also attend, it would be a chance to meet up. Very pleasant 5k course by the canal, then around the lake. Run at your own pace, there are runners of all abilities. The start is at 9am, so get there about 10 mins before. Register at www.parkrun.org.uk if you want to get a barcode to time your run. I'll be wearing a red Nike "Just Do It" T-shirt and blue cap.
