Roof-us will be running round the village lanes to complete 10 kilometres in the (virtual) Vitality London 10k Event on Saturday 29th May. He will be joined by Garry Letheren who is running in the ‘Conquer 24’ running challenge at Powderham Castle in June.

Complete your 10k over as many days as you like. Take the dog, take the family, go out with a friend. You can complete your challenge walking, running, riding pushing or being pushed. Or a combination of all of them.

Why not have a go. Just do it!

There is no entry fee but if you would like to tell us how you got on please drop your contact details into the box at the Village Hall.

Local gardener Garry Letheren has very happy memories of Sampford Courtenay Village Hall. His grandfather, the late Ralph Squires was involved in many of the events taking place there over the years.

Because of this close contact Garry has decided to compete on behalf of the Village Hall Roof Appeal in a running challenge taking place at Powderham Castle on June 5th/6th.

‘Conquer 24’ is taking place on a 5 mile course in the Castle grounds with competitors seeing how many laps that they can complete in 24 hours. Garry has undertaken a number of marathons but this event is a real test of strength and stamina.
