Man Mile Round The Ricoh Arena

18 May 2012 12:07
Run for Balls To Cancer

Everyone has heard of ‘Race for Life’, the women-only event helping raise money for Cancer Research UK. Now there is ‘Balls to Cancer’, the men-only event helping raise money for Testicular Cancer Awareness and Research.

This Sunday 20th May 2012, Sky Blues in the Community and Coventry City Council are working together to host a mile Charity Run at the Ricoh Arena, home of Coventry City Football Club.

The aim of the Charity Run is to encourage as many males as possible from in and around Coventry to participate in a mile fun run, raising money for the ‘Balls to Cancer’ charity. The day will consist of a series of mile runs around the pitch at the Ricoh Arena for all ages and abilities. You can choose the event you wish to enter:

* 10:00am – Under 16’s Run (£3.00 per entrant)

* 10:30am – Under 16’s Run (£3.00 per entrant)

* 11:00am – Adult Run (£5.00 per entrant)

* 11:30am – Adult Run (£5.00 per entrant)

* 12:00pm – Adult Run (£5.00 per entrant)

* 12:30pm – Adult Run (£5.00 per entrant)

We are encouraging all those who enter to wear a football shirt for the run they choose to participate in – whether that is your local football team kit or the team you support. On the day, parking at the Ricoh Arena will cost £1.00 and all entrants will meet outside ‘Gate 19’ by Car Park B.

Testicular Cancer incidence is rising and has doubled in Britain since the mid-1970’s, most commonly affecting men aged 15-44. So, keep your eye on the ball and help the fight against Testicular Cancer by signing up for a 1 mile run today
