'It's Parky Up North-'The 'Virtual' event' a fabulous race for Parkinson's UK Book your tickets

Beat the end-of-summer blues by signing up for one or both of our fantastic new events….one real, one virtual! Please allow us to introduce you to “By ‘eck, it’s Parky up North”. As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, here’s something to give you a nice warm, fuzzy feeling… support the wonderful work of Parkinsons UK by clicking on the links below and signing up for these fabulous events. The virtual event: run, walk, hop or skip a minimum of 5k, at a time and place of your choosing, and receive this amazing bespoke medal and buff posted to your home address. Why not add one of the fabulous limited edition Parky up North running tops as well? All profits go to Parkinson UK. The “real” event: we know how much you love to run up and down the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, so we’ll be giving over a whole new event on Saturday January 25th, starting at Kirkstall, for you to banish the winter blues and run for Parkinson’s UK. All the usual distances are available and we’d love as many people as possible to sign up, order the t-shirt too, and let’s all run together to find a cure for this horrendous condition. All profits from this event will be going directly to support Parkinson’s UK, so even if you are unable or unwilling to run one of the distances, please consider volunteering on the day, or just wrap up warm (because it’s Parky up North!) and come along and cheer the runners. We know how fab our Grim runners are, and we know that you’ll love the medals, t-shirts and buffs which we’ve had specially commissioned for this event. (A different medal for the virtual and the real event, so why not sign up for both?) Look out for other fab events coming up, where you can have fun and support this great charity. #itsparkyupnorth
