60 Miles a Day for 19 Days
We all hope you are keeping well during this National Emergency situation that we are all going through at the moment. Our thoughts go out to all of those affected by this crisis and especially to those heroes on the front line in the NHS who are working day and night to keep our nation safe and well.
Clarbeston Road Football Club's senior players have come together and have decided to do a joint fundraiser on behalf of our local NHS Heroes at Withybush Hospital and to also raise funds to support the club through the crisis, as it is having to manage fixed expenditure with much reduced income. All funds raised will be split equally between these two causes.
What will the players be doing?
Senior Players of the Club will be completing a collective sponsored run, where between them they will aim to run, on average, 60 miles per day for 19 consecutive days to complete a target distance of 1140 miles. 60 is to mark the clubs forthcoming 60th anniversary, and 19 to mark the current situation with Covid-19.
All runs will be completed individually. They will be tracked electronically and the distance collated centrally to evidence completion. This will verify that we have met our target distance by the cut-off date. The clock (and the players!) will start running on the 22nd April, and they will conclude at midnight on the 10th May.
Events for the rest of 2020
We have a provisional list of events for 2020 with hopefully something for everyone. However, the restrictions arising from the coronavirus pandemic will influence which of these will be able to proceed. We will carefully follow the guidance from the government and the football governing bodies in deciding whether to hold events. Further details of each event will be posted closer to the dates that they take place. We still have flexibility on some dates so if anyone is aware of any clashes with other local events please let us know and we will do our best to fit around these.

We have added a Club Quiz to our programme as a fun task for our members who are locked down at home during the virus restrictions and who are looking for something different to do until we can all meet up again. We hope you will also learn a little more about the club and what it has to offer. The quiz can be downloaded through the following link:
