Following the highly successful inaugural Run with Chrissie last December, the four-time Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington is heading to the capital to host the next in the run series.
Hosted in the stunning backdrop of Richmond Park, triathletes, runners and Chrissie fans alike are invited to join Chrissie, patron of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, on Sunday 26 February to take part in a 5k training run ahead of an hour’s training with Chrissie headed up by British Triathlon coaches.
“Since becoming a Patron of the Appeal in 2011, and having been inspired myself by Jane, I want to do everything I can to support the charity," said Chrissie. "The event we held in Leeds was fantastic. It was great to meet so many budding sports men and women who not only are interested in triathlon and running but who continue to support the Appeal. To be able to host yet another event like this and share my passion with people, while raising funds is incredible.”
Following the 5k run and training session, participants have the opportunity to pre-register to enjoy a buffet lunch at Roehampton University ahead of a Q&A session, where Chrissie will share her passions and fears, inspiring others to take on a challenge and achieve the impossible.
Tickets for the full training session, buffet and Q&A are available for £50. Tickets for just the 5k and training session are £30. All guests will receive a high-tech ‘Run with Chrissie’ t-shirt and event goody bag, and all proceeds will go towards the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.
With a limited number of only 100 places available, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal would urge those interested to sign up now to avoid missing out on the opportunity to train with a true British sporting legend. For more information or to book a place visit www.runwithchrissie.com
