Mark piles on the miles

Well done to Ex-Round Tabler Mark Durrant who ran the Chichester Priory10km for Ark Cancer Centre Charity on Sunday.

Mark decided to support the Charity after hearing a talk by Mark Jones, Ark Cancer Centre Charity Director of Fundraising and Communications, about the Charity's £5million fundraising appeal to help build a unique local cancer treatment centre in the Basingstoke area.

On Sunday, Mark clocked 54:45 for the 10km event - a minute faster than his previous time - and he has raised £175 so far. 

Ark100 team make successful half-marathon debut

The Ark100 team piled on the miles and pulled in the pounds at Sunday's Destination Basingstoke Phillips Half-Marathon.

A 30-strong group of runners took part as the charity fielded its first-ever team in the event, which was marking its fifth anniversary.

So far, the team members have raised more than £5,400 – a superb effort – and it is hoped that the final total will be boosted by some post-event donations.

Great Birmingham Half Marathon

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Great Birmingham Half-Marathon. The team managed to raise a staggering £8,200.
