Team SkateHut are Running The Simply Health Great Birmingham 10K Run

If you haven’t already heard, our superhero staff members are taking part in the Simply Health Great Birmingham 10k this Sunday (6th May)!

We had a team complete this run last year and the interest has definitely grown for this years run!

Some of our runners are experienced in this kind of events, whilst others are total newbies! A lot of the team have been training for this for months, enduring the snow, wind and rain to clock up some extra km’s…..others have only recently started with a more relaxed approach. Some have suffered injuries and had to tone down the training. Whilst others have been getting competitive with their times.

But, they are all in this together and are putting themselves through their paces to raise money for a fantastic charity - Birmingham Children’s Hospital. So far they’ve raised over £2,000 and we’re hoping to see that total continue to rise. There is still time to donate any amount you can HERE! All donations really do mean a lot to our athletes and the charity.

This year, they've also been supplied with Caterpy laces, the world's favourite no-tie laces. So that should reduce the risk of trips and falls, during the run.

We want to wish our SkateHut runners (all 20 of them!) the best of luck on Sunday. If you’d like to send them all some positive vibes, leave a comment below or get in touch via social media!
