Runners join Reg’s torch event

MEMBERS of March Athletic Club are lending their support to the alternative Olympic torch run being organised in March by Reg Kemp.

Club runners will be joining the jog/walk around the park as escorts to help raise their own profile and membership.

The event takes place on July 15 at 1pm in West End Park when Mr Kemp has arranged for the March people who have been chosen to take part in the official torch run, to parade their torches.

It is a special ‘one-off’ jog in the park to make up for the disappointment that the official torch relay does not come to March.

The event coincides with the regular summer Sunday band concerts with the music at 2pm by March Brass 2000.

Mr Kemp is hoping people will take the opportunity to get a closer look at the Olympic torches.

March area people taking part in the official event are Ian Groome, Jaqui Fairfax, Robyn Joly and David White.

• March AC is for all ages and standards. Come to the Elm Road Sports field on a Tuesday and Thursday at 6.15pm to find out more.
