The great egg and spoonie race

The Oriental Bird Club is appealing for people to help them raise funds for the Spoon-billed Sandpiper conservation breeding programme.

Following the success of previous fund-raising events, the OBC is organising a sponsored run along the beautiful North Norfolk Coast to be held on Sunday 5 May 2013.

There will be something for everyone, whether you are a couch potato craving fitness or a seasoned runner looking to put your talent to a great cause. Although the distance is 40km in total, between Titchwell and Salthouse, the route is broken down into different sections of between 1 km and 10km . You can run as much or as little as you like.

For those of you who fancy celebrating your achievement with a well earned drink or two we have arranged for the finish to be at a famous Norfolk watering hole –  the Dun Cow at Salthouse. We look forward to seeing you there or en route!

If you wish to take part in this fun day or just donate to help save this beautiful bird then please contact Mike Edgecombe m.edgecombe@virgin.net or John Gregory john.jane100@yahoo.com.
