Virtual London Marathon

Virtual London Marathon

***London Marathon***

A number of GFT Bootcampers are taking part in the virtual London Marathon on Sunday 9th October.
They will be running/walking around Framlingham to raise money for VICTA. A charity for Visually Impaired Children, Teenages and Adults.

The 26.2mile route is 5 laps of a 8.5km loop. It has been chosen so it will take in as many of the Bootcampers houses as possible.

They will be wearing a VICTA race shirt as well as an official Virtual London Marathon race number. Please give them a hoot, a wave, a cheer or even join them for a lap and a chat if you see them out and about on Sunday.

The route they will be using is as follows:

Starting on Pembroke Road and head towards college road.

Left up college road and onto Kings Ave and then out onto Saxtead road.

Past TMHS and left down New Street. Up Aspey Green and turn left onto top of Victoria Mill Road.

Down Victoria Mill Road and cut through into Surrey Close.

From Surrey Close left up into Castle Brooks and back down onto Brook Lane.

Right onto Brook Lane and then right onto Station Road.

Follow Station Road all the way to the little road bridge on the edge of Framlingham. Turn left onto Fairfield Road and continue running until you get to Brick lane on the right. Run halfway up Brick Lane until you can turn left onto the new housing estate.

Cut through the new housing estate via Ashwell Avenue, Banes Way, Coopers Avenue and back onto Fairfield Road. Continue up Fairfield Road and then turn right up Fore Street until you get to the top of Castle Street. Turn Left down Castle Street, following it down Church Street, Market Hill and Bridge Street until reaching the mini roundabout near 221B Bakers.

Finally over the mini roundabout, up College Road then left up Mount Pleasant until turning right at the doctors surgery and back down Pembroke Road.

This is a popular route for runners so hopefully we will see plenty of people out for support

There is still time to donate via the Justgiving page.
