Run or ride in memory of Damien

RUNNERS and riders can take part in a half marathon in memory of a Clevedon man who died following a short battle with cancer.

Since 2007, the event has been held each December in memory of Damien Feely and this year’s will take place on December 15.

It will be a combined half marathon and 10km challenge, with people given the chance to run or ride either distance, and will raise money for St Peter’s Hospice, which cared for Damien for a short time before he died aged 32.

The course starts at The Crab Apple pub off Southern Way and will follow Lower Strode Road out to Kingston Seymour and back.

Participants should be at the pub by 9am for a 9.30am start.
