Katharine and Glen said: “We’re really looking forward to taking part in the Team Relay, everyone has been so supportive from friends, family and of course our listeners. We can’t wait to experience the excitement of race day and the satisfaction of completing this event as a team. May the best team win!”

 

There’s still time to get YOUR team registered!  Why not gather a team together from work, your local community group or club?  Perhaps you could get the entire family involved for a new health goal in 2020 and join Katharine and Glen on Marathon Sunday!
