Barr Ellison Hoohaah Ickworth 10kSunday 22nd May 2022

A staggering 368 runners and their families flocked to Ickworth 10k to bask in the sunshine and explore the outstanding grounds. I do not know how Hannah Hodgson does it! It was the perfect setting – a beautiful sunny Sunday morning, stunning location and another wonderful group of runners. All fundraising for Power2Inspire!

We would like to thank everyone – fundraising opportunities like this, make the world of difference to the people we work with. It enables us to talk to thousands of young people in schools across the country, run inclusive sports events and raise awareness to make sure inclusion is at the top of the agenda.

It also helps supports wonderful heritage venues, such as National Trust’s Ickworth. We were pleased to hear so many families pledging to return to explore the house further.

You might guess that I enjoyed being the commentator! At least my hat proved a hit.

The next Hoohaah 10k is on Sunday 12th June at Shuttleworth. There are a few tickets available for runners who turn up on the day. You can also come along and cheer or get in touch if you would like to help marshall. You can find out all the details on the hoohaah website here.

Thank you to Hannah and her Hoohaah team; to Active Training World for sorting the timing and the commentator’s list; to Barr Ellison to sponsoring the series; the National Trust for sharing this special location; and above all to the runners for fundraising for Power2Inspire!

We’ve had a busy month. Not only have I been on the microphone at the Hoohaah 10k; we hosted Games2Inspire at Balgowan Primary School where a Year 4 wheelchair user shared his joy of being able join in; and we received feedback from a family at our Super Sensory 1K who said that they were able to play together…at last!

Inspired? Then Get Involved!

If you would like to support us in our mission to “embed inclusive sport in the sporting, education and community landscapes” then we would love to hear from you.

We’re always looking for opportunities to collaborate with new venues and corporate sponsors. Get in touch to find out more.
