On Sunday 8th July this year volunteers from Sheffield Hash House Harriers will run a 34 mile relay from Edale to Redmires (Sheffield), visiting 12 World War 1 memorials along the way, and laying a wreath at each. The relay will finish at Hill 60 - a training hill used by soldiers before they went to fight in the Great War.
The relay is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War One. We feel it is especially important in 2018 to remember those who gave their lives in the parishes where many of us live and work.
One of the memorials we will visit
We have been inspired by Simon Wright's “Do Something Extraordinary” challenge. 50% of the money raised will go to the Royal British Legion and 50% to Horseback UK.
