Colwyn Bay FC Gary Speed Memorial 10K Fun Run REG Form

Colwyn Bay FC wil be staging a fundraising Gary Speed Memorial 10K run in the town on World Cup Final day.

The former Wales international and manager’s father, Roger, is Patron of the club and he and his wife Carol have given their permission for the event to be held in memory of their late son who made his name playing with Everton, Leeds and Newcastle United.
The 10k run will start and finish at Colwyn Bay’s Llanelian Road ground on Sunday July 13, taking in Eirias Park, the promenade and Marine Drive past Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club, and is open to fun runners as well as serious competitors.
Football fans who would like to take part are encouraged to wear their team’s shirt so as many football clubs as possible are represented.
Entrance fee for the run will be £10 and runners will also be invited to raise money for charities through sponsorship.
Strathmore Water, official suppliers for this year’s Commonwealth Games, have already agreed to be involved by supply free water stations.
Author and comedian John Martin, who is vice-President of Colwyn Bay FC and a close friend of the Speed family commented: “From the initial reaction I’ve had It promises to be huge and could possibly become an annual event in the town as a tribute to a great North Wales sports star.”
The plan is for this year’s event to be part of a full weekend of activities at the football club to coincide with the World Cup final, which will be shown on the big screen in the clubhouse after the run.
John Martin added: “Runners will be encouraged to raise money by sponsorship for charities as Gary was a great supporter of charitable events.”
