10k posterDESPITE recent rumours, this year’s Gary Speed Memorial 10K fun run WILL go ahead as planned on Sunday July 12th with an 11am start.
Once again the event, in memory of the former Welsh international player and manager, will start and finish at the club’s Llanelian Road ground in Old Colwyn and is again expected to take in the seafront promenade through Rhos-on-Sea and back.
The fun run is open to all who would like to take part and raise money for good causes, and the entrance fee this year is £15.
North Wales-born Gary Speed, of course, played for Everton, Leeds and Newcastle United and served his country with distinction.
Last year’s fun run attracted over 300 participants and was won by Darren Blazier of Abergele Harriers in 37mins 37 secs.
