On Monday 2nd January, over 150 runners from 15 running clubs in Herefordshire and beyond laced up their trainers and took part in a Dawn til Dusk run to support the countyโ€™s athletics track.ย 

The event, that was organised by local running club the Hereford Couriers saw athletes from all age groups take part in the event which consisted of 5 8-mile loops around the city throughout the day, the event started at 8:19am just as the sun came up as runners continued to rack up the miles throughout the day until the sun set at 4:15pm which finished with a โ€˜donโ€™t let the sun go down on the Hereford athletics trackโ€™ community lap for everyone to take part in. 

On the day the event saw many runners run further than they had ever done in a day before with 6 runners; Kieran Merrick, Graeme Walker, Kim Saunders, Alex Knowles, Darren Gibbons and Ben Skinner taking on the full 5 laps and racking up an incredible 40 miles of running during the daylight hours. 

The event was the kickstart of the Save Herefordโ€™s Athletics Track Campaign which is being led by the Herefordshire Athletics Association, working with Halo Leisure as It is feared that without major investment, the only track and field facility in the county of Herefordshire will not obtain a permit to host events and meetings in future years. 

The athletics track and field facility at Hereford Leisure Centre was first laid in 1988, is now in need of major investment with recent surveys estimating something in the region of ยฃ350,000 will be needed to resurface the track along with investing in the jumps and throws areas to bring the much-loved facility up to the required standard.

The athletics association have begun a crowdfunder fundraising page for donations  https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/herefordathleticstrack working alongside Halo both parties would be happy to speak to anyone who can offer any funding opportunities on this project please contact herefordshireaa@gmail.com
