Roy’s on the run for Prostate Cancer UK

A long and frustrating lockdown is starting to relax with the opportunity for runners to start training together in small groups and no one is happier about it than Springwell Running Club’s Roy Buchanan!

The cancellation of all running events meant that motivation had to be sought in other areas and one of the best is raising much needed funds for charity.

Roy did just that and set himself the target of running 250 miles in March as he raised money for Prostate Cancer UK.

After much chafing, blisters and sore toes, Roy surpassed his target and finished the month with a magnificent 323 miles covered - that’s 520km for those of you who are metric.

More importantly all the miles raised £1330.00 for this worthy charity which is close to his heart. Roy would like to thank everyone who donated and for all the messages of support and encouragement.
