Last September father and son team Ben and Richard Oldham took part for CAFOD in the Great North Run and the Nativity Christmas Fun Run.
Ben, who is CAFOD diocesan manager in Leeds, hoped the element of family competition would spur him on to faster time, which seemed to work as he beat his dad by mere minutes in the Great North run last September.
He told us “I ran the Great North Run in 2011 as well and really enjoyed it! There is a carnival like atmosphere on the day. Signing up for a run like this is so much more fun with someone else; you can train and fundraise together!’
If you would like to run for CAFOD with your dad this autumn, we have an amazing offer for you for the Yorkshire Marathon. If you sign up for a place you can register somebody else absolutely free! You’ll have all summer to train together and you can fundraise together towards your fundraising target of £500. So grab your dad, mum, sibling or friend and make a difference this year in the fight against poverty.
Please see our webpagefor more information and to take advantage of our amazing deal.
Please get in touch if you are interested in joining CAFOD for any of our other autumn events. We have places in the Great North Run, Great Birmingham Run and Great South Run and we would love to hear from you!
