PARAS10 Arnhem Virtual
The Dutch do us proud in the PARAS10 Arnhem Virtual
In the first week of October 13 Dutch runners completed the 10-mile Arnhem Virtual run under the banner of the Arnhem Fellowship to help raise funds for Support Our Paras (The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces Charity).
Our member, Matthijs Somford, organised them to run under 3 team names:
- Captain Lipmann-Kessel
- Major C. Longland
- Captain B. Devlin
As a bonus, Matthijs organised for the teams to be transported to the start of the run in 3 Jeeps provided by the Airborne Garage and Keep Them Rolling. Their route took them from Landing Zone ‘S’ to the Arnhem Road bridge via, amongst other places, the ‘culvert’, Hartenstein, Schoonoord, Tafelberg, the old church in lower Oosterbeek, Oosterbeek Laag railway bridge, and St Elisabeth’s hospital.
So far, with your support and our race entry fees we have raised a total of £1442.
The donations page is still open if you feel tempted to support our Dutch compatriots in their efforts!
