The Lake Run Andover 2018
16th September 2018 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
Charity campaigner, TV presenter, author and former Andover resident Katie Piper has kindly agreed to open the Lake Run Andover on Sunday 16 September 2018. The acid attack survivor set up The Katie Piper Foundation in 2009 and has written books about her own experiences offering guidance on confidence. She is begins her debut speaker’s tour ‘What’s in My Head’ in Andover on 13 March 2018. The Lake Run Andover are delighted to have Katie at the popular event, which raises money for the Andover foodbank, on 16 September 2018 and look forward to seeing lots of runners and supporters welcoming Katie in her hometown.
There will be a 10K and 5K race, 5K and 2K fun run. (Please note minimum entry age for 5K race is 11 years old – any children under the age of 11 must enter the fun run)
The runs will start at Charlton Sports Centre (SP10 3LF). The 10K and 5K routes will go past Charlton Lake and the 10K will continue on to Anton Lake taking in the beautiful and peaceful scenery of the backwaters of Andover. Anton Lake is situated just north of Andover town centre and was designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1996. The 2K will be run around the athletics track and sports fields at Charlton.
All three runs will finish in front of Charlton Athletics Pavilion – hopefully to much cheering from family, friends and other supporters!
The Andover foodbank gives emergency food and support to people in crisis in and around Andover. It relies on financial donations to enable it to help those in need.
