FUNDRAISING : We are looking for local business' and people to sponsor NHS staff to complete this event. We want to fund raise as a thank you to NHS staff who work tirelessly for us under immense pressure. We also want to focus on their wellbeing and getting them active. Wellbeing in the workplace is so important, so ensuring staff are healthier and happier both in and out of work, is another key reason to donate and fund future staff wellbeing initiatives. If you would like to donate, please go to the donate page.

Check out Taunton Leisure to order yours or get one from an online store. The route will be way marked and we will be using reflective markers to make it easier for them to be seen.

DOGS : I'm afraid that at this stage dogs are not allowed to compete. They are very welcome to join the spectators but MUST be kept under close control.
