As a result of a last minute legal problem beyond the organiser’s control and budget, The Vera Half Marathon has been changed to a 10k Fun run and walk. We realise that many people have spent a lot of time & effort in preparation for the race. I am hopeful that this will not be wasted and they will find the 10k run a challenge, more importantly taking part in order that the chosen charity (San Agustin Children’s Refuge) will benefit by receiving the much needed warm bedding for this coming winter. The minimum registration /sponsorship is now reduced to only 10euros.

To those people that are / were planning to travel a long distance to the event we can only apologies and give them the assurance that changing the format of the day was a decision not taken until every avenue was investigated. The general plan for the day has not changed. Registration and the Craft market will open at 2pm the race and walk will start at 4pm followed by presentations and a Bar B Q in the evening.

As a sponsor to the event we thankful your previous support for which the members of the Vera & District Lions Club thank you. Any support that you can give to the reformed event be diluted would be appreciated. Obviously there are still going to be a huge number of people at the Vera Hotel on the afternoon of the 6th October. The 10k fun run & walk will also appeal to a wider cross section of local people.
