Gloucester Athletic Football Club take on the Cheltenham Half marathon for GYC

Our new charity partner GAFC haven’t wasted any time showing their support for us as their chosen charity. 8 members of the team including management have already started training in sub zero temperatures in their bid to take on the Cheltenham Half Marathon in September. Raising over half their £1000 target in a matter of days they are well on their way to smashing this amount and raising much more. We look forward to following them every step of the way and seeing them out and about in our new GYC running vests. Dean from the club said “It was an easy decision for Gloucester Athletic to support Gloucestershire Young Carers. The amount of effort and responsibilities these young carers have to take on is unbelievable so it’s great knowing they have good support via GYC. As a new club we still wanted to try and raise some money to help support GYC hence signing up for the Cheltenham Half Marathon”.

If you would like to take on a running or physical challenge for us this year and give yourself a focus and fitness motivation whilst fundraising we have a list of local runs for a variety of distances and difficulty.
