Introducing the Gloucestershire Social Distancing Race Series
Right now, getting outside, exercising and feeling part of the community are more important than ever for our mental and physical wellbeing. So to give you the chance to do all these things, we're organizing the Gloucestershire Social Distancing Race Series in aid of Feed the 5,000 and Uley church with the support of Dursley Running Club.
What is it?
Unlike physical events, with a virtual event, you can complete your run wherever you choose, and in your own time. Record your run with a GPS watch or running app, and upload your result to see how you got on against others.
Taking part is easy – Join us on 4th - 5th July for the second race
- Sign up here
- Complete your selected race within 48 hours of the start of the event, and record it using a GPS watch or running app
- After your race, go back to the sign-up page and submit your result, including a link to your uploaded activity (and a selfie!)
...then check out your name in the finisher board, and await your personalised certificate!!
Please forward this to anyone you think would enjoy taking part
The Long Table is part of the Grace Network, a social enterprise based in Brimscombe, Stroud. They bring people together through food by running a bakery, kitchen, shop and a dining space where they provide delicious home-cooked, nutritious meals.
In response to the corona virus crisis they quickly adapted their services to cook and deliver delicious healthy meals to those self-isolating and most in need in the county.
The Long Table have joined forces with the Diocese of Gloucester, the Bishop of Gloucester and a series of community kitchens throughout the county who are cooking meals and feeding the 5,000. A massive thank you to the Stroud community kitchens
The Long Table also works with food banks supplying customers with free regular deliveries of precooked meals. Freezers stocked with ready meals for NHS staff are installed in Gloucester and Cheltenham hospitals.
