Hello and Welcome to The Allegr 12 Olveston, Bristol Event.
We’re delighted you’re here, and really hope you’ll join in.
What's happening on SUNDAY JULY 25th?
Ben will run for 12 hours non-stop around a 6 k loop around Olveston and Tockington.
We’d love you to join in - for some, or all of this. As slow or as fast as you want, for as little or as much time as you wish.
The course will open at 0700 and close at 1900. Between those times you are free to show up, and go as far, or for as long, as you can. Not because you have to, but because you want to.
Just join the loop (with your people / community or alone) and bring your 100%.
Ben’s 12 hour mission might be the headline, but the real story of the Campaign lies with YOU all - the people who show up on the day – and the many individuals across the country who will also be joining in remotely.
Your distance. Your pace.
Just bring yourself and enjoy the chance to connect
and engage with your local community.
As simple as... 1, 2, 3
