Runway Sunday – A charity event for families – Cycling, Scootering and Skating
Sunday August 19th on the old Bentwaters Runway at Bentwaters Park in Rendlesham near Woodbridge.
Imagine riding your bicycle down the length of a runway, or taking the challenge on a scooter, inline skates or a skateboard. On Sunday 19th August families will be able enjoy a unique experience thanks to the owners of the old Bentwaters air base, Bentwaters Parks and key sponsor Colourchange UPVC.
The owner of Colourchange UPVC, Daryl Collins sponsored the St Elizabeth Hospice London to Paris charity ride last year. This year he has set the wheels in motion for a new fundraising event for the St Elizabeth Hospice, called Runway Sunday. Starting at 9.30 am on Sunday 19th August there are a series of activities planned for families to enjoy activity on 2 wheels, 4 wheels or 8 wheels in a safe and traffic free environment. Riders will have a circuit that uses the full length of the runway, whether people are looking for an endurance event on the 2.3 mile circuit or just want to experience the vast open space on the middle of the runway the choice will be theirs.
The organisers have been working with British Cycling and tickets, tickets starting at just £10 for a family can be pre-booked via the event website www.runwaysunday.co.uk.
