Birchwood 10k

This was another opportunity to raise awareness, rather than raise funds. Of course, if you want to help us in our fund-raising efforts, you're more than welcome, but more of that later.

From less than 100 runners in my last race, this was a chance to get the running4rwanda name in front of up to 1000 runners. If only 3% of the runners noticed the web address, and only 3% of those visited the web-site, then that's 1 extra reader. If you are that 1 extra reader, then thank you for visiting, and thanks for reading this far.

Please take a few minutes to find out a little about the site by reading some of the entries, and looking at FAQs. If you want to join us, or find out a little bit more about us, please follow the Contact me link.

If you would like to make a donation, no matter how big or small, there is an appeal open at www.bmycharity.com/mystery5k . Please feel free to make an online donation, or if you would rather send a cheque, please use the 'Contact me' link, and I'll give you all the details.

All money received will go to the Maternity and Safe Motherhood projects - every penny received by Shyira Trust goes to the projects, and every penny is vital.

(PS This was my 1st 10k this year. I did a time of 42:54 - exactly the same time as 2 years ago!)
