Father Chris is on the run again

Post - Father ChrisStroud’s own Fr Chris is an accomplished marathon runner and has entered into the Blackmore’s Sydney Festival of running on the 21st of September.

“I first ran the London marathon in 1983 and have run quite a few marathons since then, most recently the London Marathon in 2011 which I ran in 3hrs 57 minutes.”

“I am running the 42km marathon and I’m being sponsored for the Samaritans, the charity that helps a wide variety of people,” said Fr Chris

The Samaritans offers support to people in need from all walks of life in the Hunter, Central Coast, Newcastle, Mid-North Coast, Mudgee and the Central West of NSW.

“I think Samaritans is a very worthwhile cause and I am grateful for any sponsorship,” says Fr Chris

You’ll find sponsorship forms at the Stroud Anglican and Baptist churches, at the pharmacy and Stroud Public School. People can also donate online direct to the Samaritans make sure you put ‘Fr Chris’ Marathon in the comment box.

“I am now training around Stroud and will build up to training runs of around 35k before tapering down ready for the run itself.”

Thanks for your support
