Running for peace

Three Friends joined a 10km run in September, raising the profile and some additional funds for Northern Friends Peace Board and as a further way of marking our centenary, Co-ordinator Philip Austin was joined by Keith Hargreaves, NFPB member from Chorley and Ed Johnston from Bolton Meeting. They were amongst about 3,000 runners in total for the Salford-based run, although our three were all more used to solitary running and in hillier and more scenic landscapes. They were pleased to finish within a few minutes of each other and to have this opportunity to make ourselves more visible. There’s a fund-raising page for anyone to sponsor the runners retrospectively: http://www.mycharitypage.com/PHAustin .
