Sponsored bike ride / pub crawl in aid of Heartbeat

The Bull Run

We can’t thank these guys enough for this wonderful donation of £2,875.01  !

John Wilkinson, David Ingram, Kevin Stanfield, Andrew Loftus and Ian Coupland pictured here organise an annual sponsored bike ride / pub crawl covering 32k, 9 pubs and one bench, in memory of friends and family that have passed.

Over 50 riders joined them on the day, starting at The White Bull in Walton le dale then visiting various pubs in Houghton, Riley Green, Withnell, Chorley, Bamber Bridge, Preston then returning back to The White Bull.

The theme for the ride was ‘The Bull Run’ hence them all wearing white shirts and red sashes – ‘Pamplona Style’

Great Manchester Run 2019

The Great Manchester Run is known for its buzzing atmosphere, incredible supporters and the booming anthems that rock the city’s streets, experience a running event like no other. And remember, no matter how you get to the start-line and whatever your reason for running… do something to show them what you’re made of.

Run For Heartbeat!

We want a big team to represent us at the Great Manchester run. We have places for both the 10km and half marathon and just ask for as much sponsorship as you can get, in return.

It’s a fantastic event with thousands of runners and a brilliant atmosphere. We’d love to see a big team of Heartbeat runners take part and enjoy the day.

We can help people out with training plans and support them all the way. It’s a great way to get and stay fit as well fund-raise for your local heart charity.
