NEWICK WILL PAGE 10K

5 HILLY RUN

NEWICK WILL PAGE 10K

WHERE: Newick, East Sussex, UK

WHEN: 30th August 2015

You’ll have to pace yourself on this undulating 10K, which is tinged with sadness – it was introduced 22 years ago to fund a programme for the Sports Pavilion extension on George V Playing Field, Newick. Will Page, a keen runner and sportsman, was just starting to organize the event when he tragically died in a road accident. The race went ahead in Will’s name and has been held every year since then. It’s a race to remember and one worth joining and supporting.
