Lord Smythe's Poppy Run 2015

Paul Smith

My page:

After last year's epic 100 War Memorials Run covering 67 miles I am at it again all in the name of Remembrance and raising funds for The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Instead of one huge run decided to run several runs listed below carrying the giant poppy once more but also wearing my father's old Royal Artillery uniform which I can guarantee is far from runner friendly.

Saturday 7th November - Durham parkrun

Sunday 8th November - Following Cenotaph Service at 11am Seaham's "Tommy" statute to "DLI Soldier" statue in Durham Market Place

Wednesday 11th November - Running to work from home via several war memorials visiting DLI Museum and Durham County Hall Remembrance Service at 11am finishing at Meadowfield hopefully running 11.11 miles.

Please donate what you can afford and give to those who have given for their country.
