Race Report: 2013 Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere

This race report was sent to us from Lee Armitt at Parkinson’s UK:

Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere that took place on Sunday 28 April 2013 at 10.30am in Newbury, Berkshire.

Parkinson’s UK invited fans of Downton Abbey to don their trainers for a special challenge. Runners of all abilities and ages took part in a 10km run in the beautiful grounds of Highclere Castle in Newbury Berkshire – the setting for the multi award-winning ITV1 series Downton Abbey.

Places were strictly limited for the run which took in special views of the house and its grounds. Over 600 runners took part in the Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere and it is hoped that £30,000 will be raised from the event.

Steve Ford, Chief Executive at Parkinson’s UK, said: “I’d like to say a big thank you and congratulations to everyone who ran for us at our Run Highclere event.  It was fantastic to see so many of our supporters don their trainers and enjoy running in the picturesque grounds of Highclere Castle.  Without the help of our fundraisers, our vital work to find a cure and improving the lives of those living with Parkinson’s would not be possible.”

Parkinson’s UK Run Highclere is a flat road run and is licensed by UK Athletics (UKA). All runners received their own official race finish time – which is recorded using chip technology – an exclusive souvenir T-shirt and a finisher’s medal.

Every penny raised from the event will be used to fund vital research to help find a cure and to improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s.
