Bike Run or Walk for
Your Local Air Ambulance
EVERY 10 minutes an Air Ambulance
takes off to attend the injured and save lives. UK coverage is provided by
local Air Ambulances, many of which do not receive Government or lottery
funding and rely on donations from the public to remain in service. The
group BRoW4 (Bike Run or Walk 4) is providing an opportunity for people to
raise money for their local Air Ambulance.
The 3rd annual Bike, Run or Walk event will take place on Sunday, 25 June
2017, at Ferry Meadows, Peterborough. There are 3 routes to choose from;
5km track for walking with or without a dog. (About 3 miles); 8km track for
bike, run or walk with or without a dog. (About 5 miles); 12km track for
bike or run. (About 7½ miles). There will be marshals along each route. This
is not a race, allowing participants to finish the route in their own time.
Participants are expected to raise money for their chosen Air Ambulance
through sponsorship of their finishing their chosen route. Everyone who
