The Gords event celebrates the life of Gordon Clements, who was a founder member of the Wye Valley Runners.
An exceptional runner, Gordon posted times of 32.39 for a 10K, and 1:14 over the half marathon distance. Unfortunately, 9 years ago he died of lung cancer. Paul Bouston had been best friends with Gordon's son at school, and subsequently a close friend Gordon himself.
With his death Paul felt a race in his memory, with all proceeds going to a local charity, would be the most fitting way of honouring Gordon.
Previously the race took place near Swainshill, but now has moved to a new location and will be around the ancient hill fort of Caplor Hill near Fownhope.
Beginning at 7pm, competitors will experience a testing, multi terrain course on what will hopefully, be a balmy summes evening.
Those who have run in the event before know that it is a special event, so if you find yourself at a loose end why not come along with a few friends and enjoy a friendly, well organised event that takes in some of Herefordshire's picturesque countryside.
We look forward to seeing you on the day!
