THE RNLI has been confirmed as the official charity of this year’s The Running Festival at Goodwood.
The event will take place on Sunday, October 14.
The RNLI is the largest charity that saves lives at sea, with its main aim to educate, influence, supervise and rescue those at risk from drowning.
It provides a valuable service to the many busy stations along the south coast. The charity will be using their time at The Running Festival at Goodwood to launch their annual Reindeer Runs – festive family runs that take place each winter.
The Running Festival at Goodwood provides sporting fun for runners of all ages and abilities, with the Family Mile kicking things off at 9am, the 10K race following at 10am and the Half Marathon at 12pm.
Race director Joe Williams said: “We are thrilled to announce the RNLI as one of our official charities for The Running Festival at Goodwood this October.
“The charity is dedicated to saving lives at sea at busy stations along the south coast, relying on volunteers and supporters who work tirelessly to keep us safe.
“They are essentially ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and we hope to raise as much as possible to support their heroic work.
“We are looking forward to welcoming runners of all abilities to The Running Festival at Goodwood this autumn, it is set to be a fantastic day of running and family fun.”
Roseanne Blaze, community fundraising manager at the RNLI, added: “We are honoured to be the official charity for The Running Festival at Goodwood which is an exciting new event on Britain’s south coast.”
