Michelmores relay delivers trophy to Powderham Castle for September's 5k Charity Run

A team from Michelmores has taken part in a relay to celebrate the return of their 5k Charity Run, taking place on Thursday 8 September 2022.

The annual charity run took a short hiatus during the pandemic but returns for 2022, at a new venue. In its first 20 years, the Michelmores 5k Charity Run took place in the centre of Exeter, starting at the Cathedral Green and running around the city. This year, participants will be running through the glorious parkland of Powderham Castle in Kenton.

Managing Partner, Tim Richards said:

'We're very pleased to bring back the Michelmores Charity Run for 2022. Powderham Castle is the perfect setting to get together and raise vital funds for the mental health charity, The Charlie Waller Trust. We look forward to welcoming everyone on the 8 September for what will be a brilliant community event'.

17 Michelmores employees took part in a relay from Exeter's Cathedral Green to Powderham Castle on the morning of Tuesday 2 August carrying the trophy that will be awarded to the fastest Corporate Team. The 14km route was a great training opportunity for the runners who sported a variety of previous Michelmores 5k Charity Run T-shirts. Participants signing up to do the event in September have the option of buying a reduced cost ticket and reusing an 'old' Michelmores event T-shirt; one of the ways in which Michelmores is working to reduce the environmental impact of its event.

Registration for the Michelmores 5k Charity Run is open now. Visit Michelmores 5K Charity Run | Michelmores to find out more about the event, and to book. All profits will be donated to the Charlie Waller Trust who work with those who support young people with their mental health.
