Ready, Steady, it’s the Fermor Fitness 5k and 10k!
Sunday 8th July, starting at 9am at Sir Henry Fermor School.
Everyone welcome, whether you want to compete for your PB or walk with a friend. It’s all for an amazing cause, to raise money for Sir Henry Fermor School.
With funding for primary schools increasingly in the media spotlight, everyone knows that times are more challenging than ever. The Friends of Fermor School are constantly seeking innovative ways to raise much needed funds, whilst bringing joy to the community too.
Fermor parent, Alex Taylor, created a fabulous exercise class, Fermor Fitness. A couple of times a week, her and her husband host fun fitness classes, suitable for all levels. Even the youngest members of the family enjoy joining in!
Classes are run on a donations basis and have already raised over £600 to help provide inspiring resources and experiences for the children of Fermor School.
Alex Taylor said:
We’ve been amazed how well our idea has taken off. We have almost 180 members already and our weekend classes are particularly popular. To join in the fun, find us on Facebook under the ‘Fermor Fitness’ group for more info and event details. It’s a great way for all the family to get fit and to meet new friends too!.
Based on the success of this, Alex decided to create The Fermor Fitness 5 or 10k, with all entry fees and sponsorship going directly to the school. Over 200 people have already shown an interest in taking part, but The Friends of Fermor would like to make it an even bigger event. Anyone is welcome to join; entry is just £10 per person.
The route around Crowborough is set, (avoiding the famous Palesgate lane route that so many runners dread!) and thanks to the generosity of Waitrose, Tesco and Assassins Gym, delicious refreshments, after race snacks and excellent fitness related prizes will be on offer. And a medal for everyone who completes the course too, of course.
If you would like to join, please join our Facebook Group – Fermor Fitness 5k/10k.
You can enter and pay your £10 fee via MyDonate using the following link:
Additional sponsorship via My Donate would be gratefully received!
The Head Master of Sir Henry Fermor, Mr Sutton-Smith said:
Everyone at Fermor School is delighted to support Alex and the team at Fermor Fitness and is looking forward to the event and hoping to see lots of parents, teachers and staff doing their bit! I will be there to open the race, and to cheer everyone along at the finish line!
The Friends of Fermor look forward to welcoming you on the day.
