On Sunday 17th Jan it would have been the 38th Essar Four Villages Half Marathon. As you will know the majority of running events have had to be cancelled this year. Unfortunately our race has fallen victim to the pandemic too.

As well as giving the running community a great race, one of our key objectives is raising money for our local hospices - Halton Haven Hospice and Hospice of the Good Shepherd. Whilst Covid 19 curtails our ability to race, it does not reduce the need for the Hospices to raise money.

So on the intended date of the 2021 race, we set up a Just Giving page for these Hospices. The Just Giving page can be found here www.justgiving.com/team/4VHM

Helsby Running Club have donated £1,000 from our own funds (£500 for each hospice) and we are asking the running community to consider using some of the race fees they are saving to help out the Hospices.

We appreciate the fact that the pandemic is causing a lot of hardship for individuals too, so understand if people are not a position to donate but if you are able to that would be fantastic.

We are hoping to back in January 2022.
