** Local runner Andrew Wrath will be running 10K at each of a number of
different locations across Europe on Friday, April 5, showing how easy it is to
traffic people across borders. He will be finishing in his home town of Melton
Mowbray. Melton Running Club-MRC and Stilton Striders will be co-hosting a
10K run with Andrew when he arrives by train approx. 21:30pm in Melton and
we’d like your support for this serious but special occasion. Melton Sports is
putting a pair of AfterShokz Trekz Air open ear headphones and a goodie bag
(worth over £150) up for grabs to boost the fundraising total on the night.
