8th September 2013 run

Public Group active 4 years, 5 months ago ago

Hi Everyone, United Kingdom calling!

Just wondering if our running friends in South Africa would like to join us on 8th September? We are all members of, a forum for runners, many ran the London Marathon this year, others are new to running. We give each other help and advice.

One of our members, a lovely guy from Ireland, called Oggie, had an idea to get everyone running on the same day, any distance, any speed, race or own run, even just round the block! The idea is to all run on the same day. We’d upload a photo and our Garmin times (if we have one) on the realbuzz forum / blog.

It grew ! Now we’re doing it for charity, drawn out of the hat, The National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society, supporting those with this particular form of chronic arthritis. I’ve got it and was once a sub 3 hour Marathon runner (PB 2hrs 48mins). I’m still running but slower & fighting my condition with running & med’s ! we’re all wearing something orange on the day, NASS colour.

It would be fantastic to get some of you kind hearted runners from South Africa to Join in too!

A non – compulsory donation to NASS of approximately 152 Rand would be very appreciated :)

You can join the, then hit the ‘All Blogs’ dropdown on the homepage and join in the chatter and fun!

Please help in spreading this great day worldwide!!

All the best,

Gerry aka Berlin Bolt
